About M. Butterfly
When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in reality, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, "M. Butterfly" confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.
