Mme Butterfly – Puccini

The season starts with a glittering performance LIVE from The Royal Opera House Covent Garden of Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.

‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’  On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.

We have previously shown Glyndebourne’s production of Puccini’s heart-rending opera set in 19th-century Japan but this is the first time we have shown this exquisite Royal Opera production that takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, ‘Un bel dì, vedremo’ (‘One fine day’) and the ‘Humming Chorus’, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking.

Doors open 6.30pm, curtain rises 7.15pm
