Russian State Opera - Madam Butterfly

Russia’s acclaimed opera company returns to the UK with the masterpiece Madam Butterfly
 
Wyvern Theatre, Swindon
Tuesday 16 February 2016, 7.30pm
 
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
 
This tale of the doomed love of an American naval lieutenant and his young Japanese bride inspired Puccini to write some of his most sublime and beautiful music. Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas, and from its theme of noble self-sacrifice spring melodies that grip your heart.
 
With all the cultural sensitivity of a day-tripper, Lt B.F. Pinkerton is making himself at home in Nagasaki. On the suggestion of his friend Sayre, he takes a Japanese wife and house for the duration of his stay there. Pinkerton sets his sights on Cio Cio San, as fragile and as delicate as a butterfly. In order to become his bride she must cross cultural boundaries and defy the will of her family.
 
Tickets: £30.00, £33.00, £36.00
