Madama Butterfly is a love story that reaches across cultures, across oceans, across time.
Puccini's popular opera inspired the musical Miss Saigon. It is filled with gorgeous music, from the lovers' first rapturous embrace to the intense finale. It features the aria 'Un bel dì, vedremo' and the Humming Chorus, along with Japanese and American musical themes.
One of Australia's greatest theatrical minds, John Bell, directs this production, complete with beautiful costumes and sets.
Hear Opera Australia's wonderful singers perform with a chamber orchestra, along with a children's chorus, drawn from local communities.
