Russian State Opera present - Madama Butterfly

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a Large Live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's Madam Butterfly. This tale of the doomed love of an American naval lieutenant and his young Japanese bride inspired Puccini to write some of his most sublime and beautiful music.

Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas, and from its theme of noble self-sacrifice spring melodies that grips your heart. This exquisite production, with its beautiful set and costumes, intensifies the emotion in an already heart-breaking opera.

This touching story of innocent love crushed amidst two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
