MADAME BUTTERFLY (OPERA)

18 Sep 2018

OPERA AUSTRALIA

 

MADAME BUTTERFLY IS A LOVE STORY THAT REACHES ACROSS CULTURES, ACROSS OCEANS, ACROSS TIME.

 

A man enchanted by the beauty of the East.  A woman in love with the promise of the West. Separated by a vast ocean and many years, what will become of their love?

U.S. Naval officer B.F. Pinkerton is ashore in Japan, and enchanted with its beauty and freedoms. He decides to take a wife, and when the gorgeous geisha Butterfly arrives, he is transfixed by her charms. She falls hopelessly in love, and a passionate marriage begins.

Years later, Pinkerton has returned home. Abandoned by her family, Butterfly waits faithfully for her husband to return. Dawn breaks on a ship in the harbour. What will become of her great hope?

Puccini’s popular opera inspired the musical Miss Saigon. It is filled with gorgeous music, from the lovers’ first rapturous embrace to the intense finale. It features the famous aria One Fine Day and the Humming Chorus, along with Japanese and American musical themes.

One of Australia’s greatest theatrical minds, John Bell, directs this English-language production, complete with beautiful costumes and sets.

Hear Opera Australia’s wonderful singers perform with a chamber orchestra.

Popular local performer and musician, Denise Sam, will prepare a local children's choir to take part in the production.
