Opera Loki brings Puccini’s Butterfly to Highgate
19 September, 2019 — By Michael White
Opera Loki’s touring production of Madam Butterfly is at Upstairs at the Gatehouse from September 26-29
THE Upstairs at the Gatehouse theatre in Highgate isn’t a great venue for opera, and breathing into it the magic required for Puccini’s Madam Butterfly will be an uphill task.
But a small, charitable company called Opera Loki will no doubt give it their best shot when their new touring production opens next Thursday (September 26).
Sung in English translation, it features young singers at the start of their careers.
