MADAMA BUTTERFLY - ROH 'LIVE' VIA SATELLITE at the Festival Drayton Centre

Set in 19th-century Japan, Puccini's heart-rending opera tells the tale of Cio-Cio-San, a young geisha who falls in love with an American naval officer –and pays the ultimate price.


‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officerPinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, 'Un bel dì, vedremo' (‘One fine day’) and the ‘Humming Chorus’, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking.


Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from19th-century European images of Japan.
