Madame Butterfly – Opera Australia

Saturday 1 September at 7.30pm

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? Madame Butterfly is a love story that reaches across cultures, across oceans, across time.

U.S. Naval officer B.F. Pinkerton is ashore in Japan, and enchanted with its beauty and freedoms. He decides to take a wife, and when the gorgeous geisha Butterfly arrives, he is transfixed by her charms. She falls hopelessly in love, and a passionate marriage begins.

Years later, Pinkerton has returned home. Abandoned by her family, Butterfly waits faithfully for her husband to return. What will become of her great hope?

One of Australia’s greatest theatrical minds, John Bell, directs this English-language production with Opera Australia’s wonderful singers performing with a chamber orchestra, along with a children’s chorus, drawn from our local community.
