Russian State Opera: Madama Butterfly

Tue 16th Feb

The Russian State Opera returns to the Everyman Theatre to present three classic operas featuring an impressive cast of over 30 musicians.

No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madama Butterfly.

Set in Japan at the turn of the last 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.
