May 04, 2008|By Tim Smith | Tim Smith,Sun music critic

Some years hence, a university student may well write a thesis on the origin of Micciche's trademark high-tech graphics in the staging of operas, comic or otherwise.

On Stage Madama Butterfly will be performed at 8:15 p.m. Saturday and four more times through May 18 at the Lyric Opera House, 110 W. Mount Royal Ave. $46 to $132. 410-727-6000 or
