Madam Butterfly

OperaUpClose in association with Belgrade Theatre Coventry

New orchestration by Ruth Chan
New English version by Poppy Burton-Morgan

Madam Butterfly

A young woman is abandoned by the man for whom she has sacrificed everything. But she is stronger than anyone imagined. Retold from a female, East-Asian perspective, this Madam Butterfly is transposed to 1980s Japan, where traditional cutlure collides with a new digital age, and the intimate exploration into the heart and mind of a young woman, is all the more poignant.

One of the best-loved operas of all time, Puccini's sublime music has been re-orchestrated to be performed by a diverse cast of eight singers, accompanied by four live musicians. This emotionally direct and beautiful production features one of Puccini’s most famous arias, Un bel dì vedremo.

OperaUpClose is leading an artistic revolution.
