Madam Butterfly: Welsh National Opera

One of the most heart-rending of opera’s victims.

Several years have passed since Cio-Cio-San’s husband Lieutenant Pinkerton left her to return to America. She has never doubted for a second that he will come back to her. News indeed arrives that he has returned. But Cio-Cio-San could never imagine the real reason that Pinkerton has come back.

Madam Butterfly is tragic Italian opera at its most affecting. From the rapturous love-duet to the devastating ‘One fine day’, Puccini masterfully employs every note to immerse his audience in Cio-Cio-San’s tragic story. Joachim Herz’s classic, sepia-tinged production is like a beautiful old photograph. It is a nostalgic glimpse of a vanished world. Madam Butterfly promises a moving, breathtaking evening at the theatre.

Sung in Italian with surtitles in English.
