Royal Opera House

Puccini’s Madama Butterfly

(Live Screening)


"Love cannot kill: it brings new life"

On  a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have incredible consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly's aria Un bel dì, vedremo (One Fine Day) and the Humming Chorus, Giacomo Puccini's opera is entrancing and ultimately heartbreaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrica Caurier's exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-Century European images of Japan.
