Join us for an unforgettable operatic experience as the Connecticut Lyric Opera brings Madama Butterfly to life. Madama Butterfly is one of opera’s most enduring and poignant tales of unrequited love. Composed by Giacomo Puccini, this tragic masterpiece unfolds against the backdrop of early 20th-century Japan. The story revolves around Cio Cio San, a young Japanese geisha, who falls deeply in love with the American naval officer Pinkerton. Their union, however, faces cultural clashes, societal expectations, and heart-wrenching challenges. Pinkerton arranges a marriage with the fifteen-year-old Cio Cio San, known as Madam Butterfly. Their passionate union faces heart-wrenching challenges, leading to a devastating climax. The opera explores themes of tradition, devotion, honor, and justice, taking audiences on an emotional journey from innocence to acceptance of a destiny dictated by personal honor. Don’t miss this emotional journey set to Puccini’s exquisite music. Reserve your seats now and witness the magic of one of the best OPERAS ever written!
