    Please, do you know if Madam Butterfly 3D
    is sung in Italian or English? I understand that there are English subtitles but have not yet been able to verify if the singing is in fact in Italian.
    Thank you very much for any confirmation you can give.

      It is sung in Italian - all of our productions are sung in the original language.
