The Northern Lights Music Festival, using local builders and locally sourced building materials, will create a new production of Puccini's Madama Butterfly, to be performed in three Minnesota cities in July. The measurable goals will be to create a well-functioning and beautiful set that can be used in three differently sized auditoria across the Iron Range. The community will be involved by a. building the set, b. in paid crew working on the set as the performances occur, 3. In the public's attendance at the performances; 4. In paid local chorus and paid local orchestral musicians. Ticket sales will be monitored electronically and physically: website ticket sales, and tickets counted at the door. Surveys after the opera will provide audience reactions to the production. Artistic Staff will assess the quality of the physical production and the performance.
1. Construction of a new production of Madama Butterfly, using local builders on the Range. 2. Use of local technical crew to move the set to three locations. 3. Public attendance at three opera performances. 4. Use of paid, local chorus.
