Leading sopranos Hui He and Ana María Martínez share the heartbreaking title role of the doomed geisha, with tenors Piero Pretti and Andrea Carè as the American naval officer who abandons her. The great Plácido Domingo makes his role debut as Sharpless, alternating with Paulo Szot and Markus Brück, and Elizabeth DeShong is Suzuki, sharing the role with Maria Zifchack. Pier Giorgio Morandi is on the podium for Anthony Minghella's sweeping production, a perennial audience favorite.
