Glyndebourne: Madama Butterfly

Jersey Opera House

Event Overview

Giacomo Puccini’s
Madama Butterfly


One of the most famous operas of all time that has inspired numerous contemporary adaptations and reimaginings including the hit musical Miss Saigon.

When an innocent young Geisha meets an American naval officer she falls instantly and deeply in love. Giving up her family and her faith, she risks all in marriage to the dashing Lieutenant Pinkerton. But her fragile happiness cannot last.

Praised by critics as a ‘thoughtful, provocative staging’ and a ‘scathing study of exploitation’, Annilese Miskimmon’s production of Puccini’s classic opera updates the action to the 1950s.

“The emotional impact of the piece is devastating.” ***** STAGE
