Madame Butterfly

Madame Butterfly , a captivating story of innocence, love and betrayal , unfolds in the picturesque gardens of a Japanese Villa to the soaring melodies of Puccini's emotive score , all interspersed with traditional Japanese music. Similarly, classical ballet is blended with Japanese-style dancing, capturing the pain and passion of the conflict between Lieutenant Pinkerton's America and Madame Butterfly's Japan.
