Velasco a standout in Nashville's "Madama Butterfly"

"But it's Cassandra Zoe Velasco, as Butterfly's loyal and loving maid Suzuki, whose best encapsulates the audience's revulsion at Pinkerton's cavalier thoughtlessness, seething with rage even as she retains her placid demeanor while watching her mistress' heart shattered beyond recognition."


"Cassandra Zoé Velasco’s Suzuki (Butterfly’s maid) and Lester Lynch as Sharpless (the U.S. Consul) are standouts. Both characters are the proverbial canaries in the coal mine. Both see the dangers inherent in the marriage between Butterfly and Pinkerton and both are ignored to the peril of everyone involved."
