Rave Reviews!

It has been quite a while since a “homegrown” production has been this spectacular! From all the different design perspectives (lighting – wow, costumes – OMG!) to the charged direction, this Butterfly will bring back Opera at its BEST. Thank you, David!

I went Thursday night and, what can I say, it was the most beautiful cultural event that I have attended during my six years in El Paso. My thanks to the El Paso Opera and the entire cast of Madama Butterfly for an evening that I will truly never forget.

The performance last night was incredible! I have not attended this Opera before but I think I have a new favorite. The cast, the orchestra and all the behind the scenes folks did an amazing job! I love Shu-Ying Li!! Her voice was breathtaking and moved me to tears! Brava, Brava!!!! Thank you El Paso Opera for an amazing experience!

On the way out my grandma told me that as a young girl she never thought she would ever be able to experience the opera. You have made this possible for her and the rest of El Paso with all of your amazing productions. Thank you!!!!!!!!
