Madama Butterfly - Opera Australia
No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to its most famous building. And the best thing to do when you visit the Sydney Opera House is to come inside and see an opera performance.
The world’s most famous love story in a bold new production featuring digital LED sets.
The American naval officer, Pinkerton is exploring the world in the name of war and pleasure. He sets his sights on the best and fairest of this land: the stunning Japanese beauty Cio-Cio-San.
Fascinated by her exotic beauty, Pinkerton marries her on sight, while Cio-Cio-San, enthralled by his American ways and promise of a modern life in America, falls wholeheartedly in love with the stranger. But Pinkerton already has a foot out the door, looking forward to the day he will marry “a real wife, a wife from America.”
Years pass, and she waits faithfully for her husband’s return from distant shores. But when his ship comes in, Pinkerton is not alone. As dawn breaks, what will become of Butterfly’s great hope?
