Today’s Staying Alive video features soprano Maria Natale singing “Un bel dì vedremo” from Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini. She is accompanied by Lyndon Meyer.
Maria Natale made her Tulsa debut this February when she sang the title role in Tulsa Opera’s production of Madama Butterfly.
“Un bel dì vedremo” is from the second act of Madama Butterfly, and is the opera’s most famous aria. Here, Cio-Cio San sings to Suzuki, her faithful maid, that “one beautiful day” they will see a puff of smoke on the horizon from Pinkerton’s ship, and he will return to his “scent of verbena” after so many years away.
