Fantastic Madame Butterfly @Opera_North yesterday. It made me want to go to the opera every night— Lourdes Orozco (@Loulikeshills) January 20, 2018
I'm not sure what I like most about #ONButterfly; the set design, the costumes or the performances? And yes I admit to a few tears at the end. I couldn't fight it!— Andrea M (@MsAndreaCM) January 19, 2018
@Opera_North this evening's performance of Madame Butterfly was just incredible! Not a dry eye in the theatre!— Claire Anyon (@Claire_Anyon) January 28, 2018
I’ve seen this opera twice before and this was the most amazing performance! The standard of singing & the level of emotion that was portrayed through their voices and the orchestra was absolutely breathtaking. Transported me to another world! Thank you & well done @Opera_North x— Elfie Astbury (@misselfie87) February 1, 2018
