A fully staged performance of Puccini’s glorious opera with Elisabeth Roberts (Madame Butterfly), Alex Tsilogiannis (Pnkerton) and Opera à la Carte.
Set in early 20th Century, Madama Butterfly is the heart wrenching and exotic tale where Pinkerton, an American naval officer, arranges through a marriage broker to take a bride (Butterfly) while stationed in Japan. The themes of honour, duty and shame are brought together in Puccini’s rich score which combines Eastern and Western melodies to portray the jarring collision of two cultures. Will it be life with dishonour or death with dignity?
