The Artists’ Round Table offers a rare opportunity to meet the artists from The Princeton Festival’s June 2018 production of Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly up close and hear in their own voice how they develop their roles, interpretations, and insights. Vocal artists and production staff from The Princeton Festival share their personal experiences with the audience during this interactive forum.
Marian Burleigh-Motley, renowned interviewer and lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, moderates. Joining the panel are Richard Tang Yuk, Artistic Director of The Princeton Festival, and Stephen LaCosse, Stage Director, along with principal singers from the production.
The event is free and open to the public. Visitor parking is available on the PTS campus. Please join the artists for a light reception following the discussion.
