Tragic love story told in beautiful song

When Cio-Cio San sings Un Bel Di Vedremo in the opera Madama Butterfly, there will likely be tears welling among the audience in Phoenix Symphony Hall.

But tenor Jose Luis Duval has reason to be more upbeat as he assumes the part of Pinkerton in the Arizona Opera production later this month. Duval performs for a sold-out house Jan. 28 for this bittersweet story of a delicate, doomed Japanese girl who weds an American naval lieutenant.

The singer, slated to perform Jan. 26 and Feb. 2 and 4, trades off the role with Kip Wilborn during the opera’s run in Tucson and Phoenix. For ticket and show information, visit www.azopera.com.
