Senbla by arrangement with Opera International presents An Ellen Kent Production

MADAMA BUTTERFLY

Welcoming back the fabulous Korean soprano Elena Dee and the celebrated international soprano Alyona Kistenyova*.

Back by overwhelming public demand, this award-winning Opera returns in a new production with exquisite sets including a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costumes including 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.

"Above all it was a production which captured the raw emotion at the centre of the opera. Don’t take a handkerchief with you, take a box of them."
The Independent
