MADAMA BUTTERFLY: The Royal Opera (Encore Screening)

27 Mar 2024

Details

Showing at The Grove Theatre. When the young geisha, Cio-Cio-San, marries American Naval Officer Pinkerton, she believes she is entering a real, binding marriage for life. Forsaking her religion and community, she learns all too late that for Pinkerton, their marriage is merely an illusion - with tragic 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 heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan. Asmik Grigorian performs the role of Cio-Cio-San, with Kevin John Edusei conducting.
