MADAME BUTTERFLY (BALLET)

20 Jul 2018

MELBOURNE CITY BALLET

 

LOVE, HONOUR AND LOYALTY ARE PUT TO THE TEST IN THE TRAGIC TALE OF MADAME BUTTERFLY.

 

The beautiful Japanese geisha, Cio-Cio-San, hopelessly clings to the belief that her marriage to Lieutenant Pinkerton, an American naval officer, is a loving and eternal relationship. It is however, not to be.

The beauty of exquisite and sensitive choreography together with Puccini’s score has made Melbourne City Ballet’s Madame Butterfly a tender and romantic production, not to be missed.

 

Choreography: Michael Pappalardo
Music: Giacomo Puccini

“Beautifully choreographed, staged and presented…This is the company to keep your eye on; they are going from strength to strength.” - Dani Brown, Chief Editor Dancetrain

 “…a most interesting version excellently danced, [with influences] of Kenneth MacMillan and Graeme Murphy in the choreography, especially in some of the difficult partnering.” - Lynne Lancaster, Dance Informa

"They are a highly capable ensemble providing professional productions at locations and at price points for the general public. I would definitely recommend them to aficionados and the newly ballet-curious.” - Kim Edwards, Theatrepress
