Madama Butterfly – Puccini

Puccini once said that it was the most sincere and expressive work he had ever written. Beyond the conflict between two civilizations, Madama Butterfly is an ode to love and to women. For this stunning production, two women also play the key roles of orchestral conductor and stage director.

Nagasaki, beginning of the 20th century: Cio-Cio San chooses to renounce her country’s traditions and her family’s beliefs to give her whole heart to the love of her life, an American general. She never imagined for one moment that the passion that consumes her would plunge her into the depths of loneliness and hopeless despair.

Italian with subtitles in English and French.
Suggested age 11 years and older.

For all ticket holders: a free pre-concert presentation will take place one hour before each performance at the Piano Nobile in Place des Arts, moderated by musicologist Pierre Vachon.
