Madam Butterfly

by Puccini



Opera Brava in their 25th anniversary year will stage a new production of Madam Butterfly.  This exciting new production set in Japan with a magnificent international cast will leave you enthralled and moved with it’s incredible music.

Puccini called ‘Madam Butterfly’ his favourite work, one he never tired of listening to in its entirety.

Madam Butterfly is the heartwrenching story of a beautiful young geisha who sacrifices her family, her religion and, ultimately, her life for her American husband. Butterfly is the young bride of Lieutenant Pinkerton, who buys Butterfly's love while stationed in Japan and with no intention of ever taking her home to America.
