Madama Butterfly (Royal Opera House – Broadcast)

2nd October, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm


The Royal Opera (12A)

Sung in Italian with English subtitles 

Recorded screening. 

‘Love cannot kill: it brings new life.’

On a starlit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American soldier Pinkerton to young geisha Cio-Cio-San. But as they both learn, words and promises carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly’s aria, ‘Un bel dì, vedremo’ (‘One fine day’) and the ‘Humming Chorus’, Giacomo Puccini’s opera is entrancing and ultimately heart-breaking. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th-century European images of Japan.
