Sung in English, with a new orchestration for 13 players, Tobacco Factory Theatres were delighted to be co-produce with Opera Project, one of the UK’s leading touring opera companies.
Puccini’s hauntingly beautiful Madame Butterfly captures the imagination and enters the soul like no other.
Cio-Cio-San, a young geisha girl, has fallen for Pinkerton, a suave American Naval Officer. Giving up all she has, she marries him, only for Pinkerton to then abandon her. Left alone for three years bringing up their son, she patiently waits. But when her husband finally returns, her hopes for their future together are cruelly dashed.
One of the most popular and best-loved operas in the repertoire. In Madame Butterfly Puccini took a seemingly simple story and, with his unique lyricism, expressive richness and taut sense of drama, created an undisputed masterpiece that punches an emotional impact of extraordinary power rarely experienced in theatre.
Immerse yourself in Puccini’s glorious music, up close and personal. Don’t forget your tissues.
