One of the most imaginative director-designers of his time, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle was also the first significant opera director to have a large portion of his work preserved on film. In his chilling and poignant account of "Madama Butterfly", he tried to use all the typical resources of film such as flashbacks, slow motion and "inner monologues", where the singers do not move their lips to sing. Under the direction of Herbert von Karajan, the stellar cast includes Mirella Freni, Plácido Domingo and Christa Ludwig.

 

Soloists: Mirella Freni, Plácido Domingo, Christa Ludwig, Robert Kerns, Michel Sénéchal

Orchestra: Wiener Philharmoniker, Wiener Staatsopernchor
