Madama Butterfly Live from the Royal Opera House, London

Madama Butterfly Live from the Royal Opera House, London


Thursday 30th March
7:15pm until 10:15pm


One of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story. Live from the Royal Opera House, London with Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducting this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband.  Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel di’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.
