Event Information

A young geisha renounces her family to marry an American man. When he leaves to go back to his own country, she waits with their child for his return.

Though she is the gentlest of heroines, Butterfly has formidable inner strength. Guided by honour and fidelity, sustained by hope, she refuses for the longest time to believe she has been abandoned.

Puccini himself loved Butterfly above all his heroines – her for whom I wrote music in the night. And what music! The score pours out lush melodies, infused with delicate Japanese harmonies – it is as ravishing as anything in opera!
