Seattle Opera says
Puccini’s passionate music tells a tragic tale of love, betrayal, and cultural imperialism. Bound by tradition and honor, a young Japanese maiden is left to face an unspeakable aftermath when abandoned by a reckless American naval officer. Musical highlights include the radiant “Flower Duet,” Butterfly’s poignant arias, and a rapturous duet for soprano and tenor. Kate Cherry’s “sublime, visually fantastic, must-see” ( production features new-to-Seattle sets and costumes, and traditional staging inspired by Japanese theater.
