Madam Butterfly 3D (2012)

Probably the most accessible, modern, and relevant opera, Puccini's Madam Butterfly gets the 3D filmed performance treatment.

Minuses: 3 acts using exactly the same set doesn't really warrant a film treatment, much less a 3D film.

Pluses: the highly naturalistic acting of the principals makes it seem like a stage repertory company doing a musical rather than an opera putting on a production.
