Mary Rose Go, a Filipina-American soprano, says she’s “always felt extremely uncomfortable” about productions of Madame Butterfly and Turandot—two Puccini operas that often involve gong-banging pageantry similar to The Mikado. And that’s even as opera producers are nowadays keen to cast someone who “looks the part.” Go says she opted out of the chorus section of a Madame Butterfly production in order to avoid “a space where an Asian American’s worst Halloween nightmare can happen nightly in rehearsal,” as she put it.
“Madame Butterfly isn’t my voice type but, unless they re-imagined the production and got rid of the kimonos,” says Go, “I prefer not to be part of those productions.”
Going into acting or performance as an Asian-American is one of the bravest career choices I can imagine.
^Thank you. All of this. I especially appreciate the second comment.
