Ópera de Oviedo Postpones ‘Madama Butterfly’

By Francisco Salazar

The Ópera de Oviedo has postponed the opening of its “Madama Butterfly” production for the second time.

The production, which was originally postponed for Nov. 20 will be unable to open due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the region of Asturia in Spain.

While the majority of Spain has seen a clear improvement per reports on Monday, Nov. 16, the region of Asturias and Cantabria have not registered drops in the number of Coronavirus cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

However, new reports show that Spain’s numbers have decreased and could be entering a stabilization period. Reports have also announced that the number of positive tests has also fallen.

Oviedo’s “Madama Butterfly,” which is set to star Jorge de Leon and Aindoa Arteta,  currently does not have new dates. More information is set to be announced at a later date.
