About the event

Ever since it fluttered onto the world's stages in 1904, Puccini’s Japanese tragedy has moved and fascinated audiences in equal measure. This bold and beautiful staging reveals exactly why the world can’t get enough of Madama Butterfly.

Premiering at Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour in 2014, this production brings a contemporary perspective to the timeless story of Cio-Cio-San, a Japanese girl whose life is turned upside down when she marries an American naval officer. Using lavish sets and dazzling costumes, world-renowned director Àlex Ollé creates the perfect Butterfly under the stars – marrying spectacle with an incisive and sometimes confronting vision of this beloved opera.

Hiromi Omura brings new dimensions to Cio-Cio-San in a powerhouse performance, opposite Georgy Vasiliev as Pinkerton. They’re conducted by Brian Castles-Onion, with a live orchestra hidden beneath the stage.
