An international favorite for more than a century, Puccini’s unforgettable classic enchants with glorious music of unparalleled passion and pathos. Bound by tradition and honor, a young Japanese maiden is left to face an unspeakable aftermath when abandoned by a reckless American naval officer. Musical highlights include the radiant “Flower Duet,” Butterfly’s poignant arias, and a rapturous duet for soprano and tenor.
Kate Cherry’s “sublime, visually fantastic, must-see” ( production features new-to-Seattle sets and costumes, and traditional staging inspired by stylized Japanese theater.
