Metropolitan Opera: Madama Butterfly

Premiered in 1904, Madama Butterfly is one of the best-loved of all operas. Its enduring popularity is due to Puccini’s ravishingly beautiful music, Butterfly’s charming and faithful character, and the heart-wrenching story presented in the libretto by Giacosa and Illica. The story is about a Japanese geisha catches the fancy of a caddish American naval officer. She crosses cultural boundaries to become his bride and grapples with a serious dilemma while faithfully awaiting his long delayed return. Puccini's tale of tradition, romance, sacrifice, and yearning is one of the world's most beloved operas.

Plácido Domingo performing November 6, 9, 13 and 16 2019.
