Madama Butterfly - Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s favourite operas, and this is one of Opera Australia’s most celebrated productions. Madama Butterfly returns to Arts Centre Melbourne in 2012 for a strictly limited run with celebrated Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura in the title role. This is a simple tale of love and loss. It tells of the Japanese geisha, Madama Butterfly, and the American sailor who promises to love her. But when the time comes for him to sail away home, will he keep his promise? Puccini’s music captures the wonder of love at first sight. In addition the silk, paper, water and candlelight of the sets and costumes form the delicate backdrop for this most touching of stories.
