Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s favourite operas, and this is one of Opera Australia’s most celebrated productions.
It returns in 2012 for twelve performances at the Sydney Opera House with celebrated Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura, and later Australia's own Antoinette Halloran, in the title role.
Perfect for the first time opera-goer, this production blends exquisite costumes and stylish set designs with some of the most moving music ever written.
Lieutenant Pinkerton has just arrived in Nagasaki for an extended tour of duty. While he is there, he intends to live well. The local fixer, Goro, has rented a house for him, and hired staff.
