About Madame Butterfly

What sacrifices will one make in the name of love?

The famous tragedy of the young geisha Cio-Cio San and the American naval officer who pursues, then betrays, her comes alive with a fresh viewpoint for today’s audiences. Experience Puccini’s beloved masterpiece from Cio-Cio San’s perspective as she transforms from an object of lust into a fully realized woman, wife, and mother. Grounded in the original historical setting of the mid-19th century, the achingly beautiful music soars above a modern-day commentary on power dynamics and western exploitation. Opera News calls the production “proof that a ‘traditional’ approach need not lack excitement, credibility and passion.”
