Ukraine National Opera: Madama Butterfly

Fri 08 March


Ukrainian National Opera®  presents Madama Butterfly – one of the most colourful, tragic and sorrowful operas performed by Dnipro Opera, from Ukraine.

Set in Japan at the turn of the last century, it is the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride whose self-sacrifice and defiance of her family leads to tragedy. 

Though infinitely sad and tragic, the compelling tale of Madama Butterfly remained Puccini’s favourite opera – his supreme theatrical achievements also gave the world its most sublime and beautiful arias in history - One Fine Day and Love Duet, as well as the Humming Chorus which has been popular with opera-goers for over a century. 

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a live orchestra numbering over 30 musicians, this touching tale of innocent love crushed between two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.

Music by G. Puccini. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles.
