The Royal Opera House: Madama Butterfly

Genre: Opera

‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by Americannaval officerPinkerton to younggeisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelibleconsequences.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’sexquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.
