Hope, devotion, and betrayal find their fateful and desperate home in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Amidst the cherry blossoms of Nagasaki, a young woman makes a stand to support herself as a geisha after her disgraced father takes his life. Fate intervenes and brings her an American Naval Officer and she falls desperately in love. Not aware she is just a dalliance, she believes they are married and renounces her religion as he sails away promising to return. And return he does, ready to take their child and raise him with his American wife. Her father’s shadow looms as her heart breaks and she must choose to live with dishonor or die with honor.

The music of Madama Butterfly is passionate, poignant and haunting, and will stay with you long after you’ve left the theatre.

Starring soprano Latonia Moore as “Butterfly”, tenor Teodor Ilincăi as Pinkerton, and American mezzo soprano J’nai Bridges as Suzuki.

Tickets start at $45
