Madama Butterfly

An exotic and sensual poem of the soul… the opera Puccini considered to be his “most sincere and evocative” is brought to life, staged by renowned Quebec director François Racine.

It’s love at first sight for young Japanese girl Cio-Cio-San and American officer Pinkerton. But once the wedding night is over, he leaves his young wife. After betrayal comes dishonour and, in the depths of despair, the young woman takes her own life.
