Madama Butterfly!!

I saw Madame Butterfly tonight with two friends and an opera house full of people.  It was magnificent.

One friend though was not happy with the behavior of anyone in the opera.  I have suggested she rewrite it and create a modern version, Ms. Butterfly.

Women's options have been limited throughout history and this opera is a good example of that.  She does the honorable thing as she sees it, and it is certainly not a "happy ending" by our standards, and it was beautifully done.

It is thrilling to be in the opera house at night, looking across at the well-lit symphony hall.  It was an active night in the city and I am well-ready for bed.
