Never miss another 'Welsh National Opera' show
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.
Founded in Cardiff in 1943, WNO exists to produce, perform and tour thrilling and entertaining world-class opera. The Company has always provided a mix of traditional and less-well-known operas, including those of Alban Berg, Richard Strauss, Leoš Janá?ek and Benjamin Britten.
