In this video feature from PBS/Live from Lincoln Center, opera star Susan Graham narrates the story of Tomisaburo (“Tom”) Glover and his mother, Maki Kaga, whose lives paralleled those of “Trouble” and Cio-Cio San in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly

Featuring rare photographs of World War II-era Nagasaki, this story of the son of a Scottish industrialist and “Cio-San” (her geisha name) also ends before “Trouble” turns to “Gioia (Joy).”
