Russian State Opera presents Madama Butterfly – One of the most colourful & exotic operas
Featuring a live orchestra with over 30 musicians.
After sold-out performances of Madama Butterfly and Carmen last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with exquisite production, its beautiful set, and costumes which intensifies the emotion in a heart-breaking story.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.
Set in Japan at the turn of the century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy.
Sad and tragic it most certainly is, yet the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world its most sublime and beautiful arias in history - One Fine Day and Love Duet, as well as the Humming Chorus which has been popular with opera-goers for over a century.
This touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles
