MADAMA BUTTERFLY

'Love cannot kill: it brings new life'

On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly's aria, Un bel dì, vedremo (One fine day) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini's opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles
