Madama Butterfly: Russian State Ballet and Opera House
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
After sold-out performances of Madama Butterfly and Carmen last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with an exquisite production, beautiful set, and costumes which intensify the emotion of a heart-breaking story.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.
Set in Japan at the turn of the century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy.
Sad and tragic it most certainly is, yet the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini's 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.
This touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today's world.
Amande Concerts is a production company that is behind the brand of Russian State Ballet and Opera House that now performs over 200 different classical shows every year. Over the years we have been focusing on delivering the highest quality Russian ballet and opera productions to British and European audiences. We have a vast experience, specialising in Russian performing arts and are here to help you to start your journey.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House was created to present the highest quality and passion for ballet and opera. Over the past 15 years we have worked with numerous companies and artists from Russia and decided to incorporate only the best under the umbrella of The Russian State Ballet and Opera House.
Unlike many other companies touring Western Europe, we only focus on working with recognized theatres in the Russian Federation that have solidly established companies, boasting a core of experienced directors and performers who have graduated from the best artistic institutions in Russia and the former Soviet Union.
Our logo is synonymous with high quality productions and we hope you will be part of our growing family of supporters and hope to see you soon at one of our performances!
