Madam Butterfly

27 - 29 April 2017


Joachim Herz’s iconic production of Madam Butterfly returns to for limited performances in Spring 2017. Each scene in this classic staging looks like a sepia photograph through which we glimpse a vanished world.

The story of Butterfly and her American naval officer sees Eastern and Western cultures collide with tragic consequences, delivered through Puccini’s irresistible score featuring the Flower Duet and Humming Chorus, and the beautifully moving aria Un bel dì.

Sung in Italian with surtitles in English
