Welcoming back the fabulous Korean soprano Elena Dee and the celebrated international soprano Alyona Kistenyova, Maria Davydova and Ramona Bolojan*.

This award-winning opera returns in a new production with exquisite sets including a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costumes such as antique wedding kimonos from Japan.

One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heart-breaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results.

Highlights include the melodic Humming Chorus, the moving aria One Fine Day, and the unforgettable Love Duet.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

*Cast subject to change. Please note that certain seats may have a restricted view of the surtitles, please check when booking.
