A touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures, which resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Set in Japan at the turn of the last century, it tells the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer, Pinkerton, and his young Japanese bride, Cio-Cio-San, whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to disaster. Though infinitely sad, the compelling tale was Puccini’s favourite opera and his supreme theatrical achievements gave the world some of the most sublime and beautiful arias in history, including ‘Un bel dì, vedremo’ (One fine day), an epic love duet to close the First Act, and the ever-popular Humming Chorus.
Hailing from Ukraine, Dnipro Opera has a long-standing heritage of top-quality opera productions, which they are looking forward to presenting to UK opera-lovers for the first time.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
