Bravo to Karel Mark Chichon on successful Met debut

Congratulations to Karel Mark Chichon who is currently making a very successful debut at The Metropolitan Opera, conducting ‘Madama Butterfly’ in Anthony Minghella’s breathtaking and acclaimed production.
Some reviews from the opening night on 19 February 2016: 
“…the conductor Karel Mark Chichon, who made his company debut with a performance that kept the drama flowing inexorably forward, cutting the saccharine without stinting on Puccini’s lushness” (New York Times)
“Mo. Chichon’s debut demonstrated he is a very fine artist, able to coax delicate impressionistic tone color from the massive Met orchestra. Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s most popular operas, but it doesn’t play itself; it takes a perceptive maestro like Mo. Chichon to present this score at its best” (New York Observer)
Remaining performances are on: 5, 17, 21, 25, 29 March & 2, 6, 9, 12 April. Find out more on the Met website
The performance on 2 April will be an HD broadcast across cinemas and will feature Kristine Opolais and Roberto Alagna.
