Details

Based on the original Belasco play that inspired the opera, Madam Butterfly is the story of a young geisha who marries Lieutenant Pinkerton, a dashing American naval officer. What begins as an arranged marriage and little more than a one night stand for the visiting Pinkerton, becomes a profound spiritual bond for Butterfly, who forsakes her culture, her religion and her identity for his love, only to be abandoned, carrying his unborn child. The loyal Butterfly awaits her husband's return. When Pinkerton appears with a new American wife, Butterfly's fate and that of her young son are sealed.
