Opera Australia’s Madame Butterfly

Concert or Performance

6 Sep 2018 to 8 Sep 2018

A man enchanted by the beauty of the East. A woman in love with the promise of the West.
Separated by a vast ocean and many years, what will become of their love?

U.S. Naval officer B.F. Pinkerton is ashore in Japan, and captivated with its beauty and freedoms. When the gorgeous geisha Butterfly arrives, he is transfixed. She falls hopelessly in love, and a passionate marriage begins.

Years later, Pinkerton has left. Butterfly waits faithfully for him to return. Dawn breaks on a ship in the harbour. What will become of her great hope?

Puccini’s popular opera inspired the musical Miss Saigon and is filled with gorgeous music, from the lovers’ first rapturous embrace to the intense finale. It features the famous aria ‘One Fine Day’ and the Humming Chorus.
One of Australia’s greatest theatrical minds, John Bell, directs this English-language production, complete with beautiful costumes and sets and wonderful singing.
