Description

Opera in Conversation: Madama Butterfly in Context & Cultural Politics of Exoticism
Opera in Conversation features three sessions in advance of each production featuring artists, scholars, and other public figures that foster cross-disciplinary explorations of artists, big questions, and concepts in Opera Omaha’s mainstage productions. In order to decipher Madama Butterfly, this conversation disentangles the intricate geopolitical as well as cultural conditions Japan faced in the late nineteenth century vis-à-vis the United States and Europe. To this end, it also explores the images of the heroine that mirrors the amalgamation of condescending Orientalism and fascination with the racial/cultural Other. Ikuho Amano, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Japanese & Japanese Program Coordinator, University of Nebraska
