After a break for ballet over Christmas, the English National Opera is back in business. A revival of Anthony Minghellaís production of Madam Butterfly is the first up of the spring season ñ a popular success that looks set to be one of ENOís bread-and-butter shows to rival Jonathan Millerís Rigoletto or Nicholas Hytnerís Magic Flute.
