A Chance To See The Premiere Of Madam Butterfly At Scarborough Spa
The Russian State Opera returns to Scarborough Spa on Sunday 7 February 2016 with Madam Butterfly.
No opera can match the tragedy and sorrow of Puccini's classic. This tale of the doomed love of an American naval lieutenant and his young Japanese bride inspired Puccini to write some of his most sublime and beautiful music.
Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas, and from its theme of noble self-sacrifice spring melodies that grips your heart.
It tells 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 heartbreak and tragedy.
The premiere of this exquisite production, with its beautiful set and costumes, intensifies the emotion in an already heart-breaking opera.
This touching story of innocent love crushed amidst two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
Music by Giacomo Puccini. Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. Sung in Italian with English Surtitles.
