Madam Butterfly

at Belgrade Theatre, Coventry

This event has been and gone.

Olivier-Award Winning OperaUpClose in association with the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry present a new English version of Puccini’s Madam Butterfly.

A young woman is abandoned by the man for whom she sacrificed everything. But she is stronger than anyone imagined…

One of the best-loved operas of all time, *Madam Butterfly*’s glorious music and tragic heroine have enchanted audiences for more than a century. This ground-breaking re-imagining of Puccini’s masterpiece will be told from a female, East-Asian perspective, performed by a diverse-led cast of talented singers and musicians.

Performed in a new orchestration, this emotionally direct and beautiful production features Puccini’s most famous arias, including ‘Un bel dì’.

Madam Butterfly will premiere at the Belgrade Theatre on 6 February and follow with an extensive UK tour in 2019.



Fouinded in October 2009 by Adam Spreadbury-Maher, Ben Cooper and Robin Norton-Hale, OperaUpClose are widely hailed as one of the most exciting new companies around.
