Time Out says

Giacomo Puccini's classic Italian opera returns to the Lyric Opera for the 16th time, with sopranos Ana María Martínez and Lianna Haroutounian portraying the title role. The heartbreaking tale of Japanese geisha Cio-Cio-San and her marriage to an American naval lieutenant is set to a series of beautiful compositions that interpolate traditional Japanese insturmentation and folk music.
