Russian State Opera - Madama Butterfly

Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles

After sold-out performances of Madama Butterfly and Carmen last year, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with another exquisite production, featuring beautiful sets, and costumes which intensify the emotion in 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 yet compelling, the tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world the 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.

Russian State Opera enjoyed a well-deserved standing ovation” - Daily Post
