Madam Butterfly in Munich

How wonderful it is to be in an opera house where you can hear well from every seat. I saw Madam Butterfly from the very back row of the Parterre which is tucked in under the balconies but I heard and saw everything perfectly.
It was a production I really liked. Joseph Calleja sang Pinkerton and Christine Opolais sang CioCio San to a packed house ( not a seat free) and great applause. What a pleasure!
The opera house itself was a surprise. Such a severe reception area, then velvet covered handrails leading to an opulent theater. The handrails were like a transition between the two.
