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.
