Madama Butterfly

Senbla presents Opera International’s award-winning Ellen Kent Production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra

Winner ‘Best Opera Award’
Liverpool Daily Post Theatre Awards

Welcoming back the fabulous Korean soprano Elena Dee and celebrated international soprano’s Alyona Kistenyova, Maria Davydova and Ecaterina Timbaliuk*

Back by overwhelming public demand, this award-winning Opera returns in a new production 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’.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Above all, it was a production which captured the raw emotion at the centre of the opera. Don’t take a handkerchief with you, take a box of them.
