A crowd gathers to watch the koto
player Satoko Someya before Sunday’s performance of Madama Butterfly
The crowds turned up at the box-office on Sunday, including many students, who made up 12% of the weekend’s audience.
After the performance was “A Taste of Puccini” on the Capitol Theater stage, a celebration of our opening weekend, Puccini’s 150th birthday, and our guest of honor Dr. James F. Crow.
Happy Birthday, Giacomo!
