Description:

Madama Butterfly has survived the test of time, through an entire century of being the most performed opera in the United States, and one of the top five in the rest of the world. Audiences seem never to get tired of her, and opera companies could not survive without her. The entire opera is set from the point of view of the title character, who endures both shame and sorrow, until she decides to take destiny into her own hands--leading to one of the most devastating and legendary final scenes in all of opera. The drama, accompanied by Puccini’s emotionally charged musical score, portrays the dangers of misguided love, and a brave pursuit of a better life. Fully staged production with orchestra.
