Russian State Opera presents Madama Butterfly – One of the most colourful & exotic operas!
Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English subtitles
“Russian State Opera enjoyed a well-deserved standing ovation” - Daily Post
After successful opera season last year, and featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live orchestra with over thirty musicians, Russian State Opera is back to delight you with exquisite production of Madama Butterfly, with a beautiful set and costumes which intensify the emotion in this heart-breaking story.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Set in Japan at the turn of the century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy.
Sad and tragic it most certainly is, yet the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world its most sublime and beautiful arias in history - One Fine Day and Love Duet, as well as the Humming Chorus which has been popular with opera-goers for over a century. This touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
