M. Butterfly

by David Henry Hwang

Guthrie Theater, Thrust Stage, 2010

"Peter Rothstein's opera-infused, visually arresting production of "M. Butterfly" still resonates with themes of love, deception and the destructiveness of illusion."

- Rohan Preston, Star Tribune

 

"Rothstein — the artistic director Theater Latté Da, which specializes in works of musical theater — brings a lyric sensibility to the staging, and allows every voice in his ensemble a chance to shine."

- Dominic Papatola, St. Paul Pioneer Press

 

 "The Guthrie's current production of the work, directed by Peter Rothstein, masterfully illuminates Hwang's deconstruction of Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, in a gorgeous and intelligent production that both draws the audience in to the story and illuminates the critical ideas with which Hwang's script grapples."

- Sheila Regan, TC Daily Planet
