Madama Butterfly is a love story that reaches across cultures, across oceans, across time.
Puccini's popular opera inspired the musical Miss Saigon. It's filled with gorgeous music, from the lovers' first rapturous embrace to the intense finale. It features the aria 'Un bel dì, vedremo' and the Humming Chorus, along with Japanese and American musical themes.
On tour in Japan, the American sailor Pinkerton cannot wait to bed his Japanese bride. But he’s already dreaming of an American life with an American wife. When his ship departs, he condemns Butterfly to purgatory.
This new production is by Australia’s most famous choreographer, Graeme Murphy. It’s a contemporary look at Puccini’s alluring heroine. He captures the grace and gravity of a tale that begins in rapturous love and ends in cruel heartbreak.
