Madama Butterfly

25 March 2024

ABOUT

Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles

Performed by the Dnipro Opera, from Ukraine

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live Orchestra numbering over 30 musicians.

After last season’s UK premiere in the UK, we are delighted to bring back Dnipro Opera theatre from Ukraine.

No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly. Set in Japan at the turn of the last 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.

Though infinitely sad and tragic, 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.
