Madama Butterfly

One of the world's most beloved operas. An unforgettable story of unrequited love and honor.

Puccini's Madama Butterfly captures the vulnerability of innocence and immortalizes the power of tradition through a legendary story of heartbreak and betrayal. The Japanese geisha Butterfly, sung by Sheri Greenawald, falls victim to an American lieutenant's reckless passion. From Butterfly's beloved aria "Un bel di vedremo" to the "Flower Duet" full of hope and anticipation, Madama Butterfly is a timeless classic not to be missed.
