Madama Butterfly – One of the most colourful & exotic operas

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

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

After successful opera season last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with exquisite production of Madama Butterfly, 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.

Tickets:
Adults £30.50, Concessions (over 60, under 16, student and armed forces) £28.50 plus booking fee
