Russian State Opera presents
Music by G. Puccini
Sung in Italian with English Surtitles
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians
After sold-out performances of Madam Butterfly and Carmen last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with an exquisite production with beautiful set and costumes.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.
Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas. It tells the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride, who self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to heartbreak and tragedy.
Sad and tragic it most certainly is, yet the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccinis 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.
Running Time 2 hours 15 minutes including 20 minute interval
