SAN ANTONIO — Presenting Giacomo Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly” to start its second season, Opera San Antonio on Thursday proved its first-season success with Richard Strauss’ “Salome” was not a fluke.

The singing, acting, set, lighting, costumes and orchestral music flowed into an emotional and compelling unity for a level of quality that was something to behold.

Let’s start with the ending of “Butterfly.” It was shattering. Utterly devastating. Anyone would have to see it to believe it. It was bold and stunning.
