SHOW INFORMATION

Starring the Korean soprano Maria HeeJung Kim* and the international soprano Alyona Kistenyova*

Back by overwhelming public demand, this award winning Opera returns with exquisite sets including a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costumes including antique wedding kimonos from Japan.

One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heart-breaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results. Highlights include the melodic Humming Chorus, the moving aria One Fine Day and the unforgettable Love Duet.

“Stunning and emotionally charged” Cardiff Morning Star *****

“This is a Butterfly to cherish” Manchester Evening News

“Kistenyova played the tragic Japanese heroine with unforgettable grace and poignancy. “ Oxford Prospect, Spring 2015

“The set and costumes were intricate and magnificent to behold. All the beauty of Japan was made real on stage, which added to the overall exquisite tragedy of the performance.” Manchester Magazine, Autumn 2014
