Madam Butterfly

Madam Butterfly

Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose in association with Belgrade Theatre Coventry present a new English version of Puccini's 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.
