ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL OPERAS OF ALL TIME.
Madama Butterfly is the story of a young wife and mother named Cio-Cio-San, in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1904. She awaits the return of her beloved B.F. Pinkerton, a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. When his ship finally does come in, her dreams for the future break along with her heart.
“An idealistic, Japanese girl falls for a brash, entitled American soldier whose actions turn her love into a story ending in exploitation, betrayal, and abandonment. Puccini’s masterpiece Madama Butterfly forces American audiences to consider our history, culture, and the unknown victims of our past foreign policy. Our goal within a traditional setting is to honor Japanese culture through insightful storytelling and modern characterization. This creates an environment where we can examine the harsh realities of our past in an effort to learn from our mistakes at global, national, and personal levels.” – E. Loren Meeker, Director
