Long Description:
The larger than life statue by Thomas Bruno Jr, shows Madama Butterfly singing "Un Bel Di" (One fine day) under the embrace of her son.

The marker on the base reads:

"To celebrate the women of the Opera, both on stage and in the Guild, we work so the music will continue. / The Women's Guild of the New Orleans Opera presents: / "Un Bel Di" / (followed by the names of contributors in 3 columns)"

From Wikipedia: "Un bel dì vedremo" ("One fine day we'll see") is a soprano aria from the opera Madama Butterfly (1904) by Giacomo Puccini to a libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. It is sung by Cio-Cio San (Madame Butterfly) on stage with Suzuki, as she imagines the return of her absent love, Pinkerton. "Un bel dì vedremo" is the opera's most famous aria and one of the most popular pieces in the soprano repertoire. (visit link)
