An exquisite opera with a simple, yet poignant story to tell.

Once again, the Israeli Opera has taken to the operatic messiah. Puccini's poignant tale of love and honor tells the story of a young butterfly forced to face the pain and loss of her honor when the man she loves impregnates her then disappears. Based on the short story by John Luther Long entitled 'Madame Butterfly,' this relatively simple plot comes to operatic life in the hands of the conductor, director, designers, and performers.
