Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose in association with the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry presents a new English version of Puccini's Madam Butterfly.
A young woman abandoned by the man for whom she sacrificed everything. But she is stronger than anyone imagined…
Retold from a female, East-Asian perspective, this Madam Butterfly is transposed to 1980s Japan, where traditional culture collides with a new digital age, and the intimate exploration into the heart and mind of a young woman, is all the more poignant.
One of the best-loved operas of all time, Puccini's sublime music has been re-orchestrated to be performed by a cast of eight singers, accompanied by four live musicians.
