ROH Live: Madama Butterfly

Full Description

Madama Butterfly – Live From The Royal Opera House

‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’ 

On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton to young geisha  Cio-Cio-San.  But  as  they  both  learn,  words  and  promises  carelessly  spoken  can  have  indelible consequences. 

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, ‘Un bel dì, vedremo’ (‘One fine day’) and the ‘Humming Chorus’, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.
