Madama Butterfly – Giacomo Puccini
28 Jun – 10 Aug. 2019
Graeme Murphy’s arresting new production of Madama Butterfly is a contemporary look at Puccini’s alluring heroine. This bold reimagining uses the same technology that wowed Aida audiences, where towering LED screens form a dynamic backdrop of moving images.
The Shows (! – Butterfly ist eine show in downunder) run for approx. 2 hours & 45 mins with one interval – Latecomers may not be admitted until a suitable break in the performance. This may not be until interval. Event duration is a guide only and may be subject to change.
Experience the ravishing romance of Madama Butterfly in a bold new production by Australia’s most famous choreographer, Graeme Murphy. Enchanted by the beauty of Japan, the American naval officer Pinkerton takes a young geisha for his wife. The innocent Madame Butterfly falls helplessly, hopelessly in love. But every ship must return to its shore, and Pinkerton returns home, leaving his bride behind. Butterfly waits patiently for her husband to return, and when he comes at last, both lovers have a surprise in store.
This long-awaited reimagining uses the same incredible technology that wowed audiences in Aida, where towering flexible LED screens form a dynamic backdrop filled with moving images.
Puccini’s sumptuous score includes the hit aria ‘Un bel di’. See it if you like a good tearjerker, Miss Saigon, and stunning sets and costumes.
