Opera Australia - Madama Butterfly

Madama Butterfly

Presented by Opera Australia

Constrained, cocooned, caught in a moment of desire, Butterfly is incandescent. In her embrace, Pinkerton finds paradise, then cruelly condemns his bride to purgatory.
by Giacomo Puccini, with an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.

Graeme Murphy's arresting production of Madama Butterfly takes a contemporary look at Puccini's alluring heroine using a towering digital set.

Fragments of film flutter across the stage, creating a dynamic backdrop for Murphy's vision of Butterfly.
He draws on his roots in choreography to capture the grace and gravity of a story that begins in rapturous love and ends in the cruellest heartbreak.

Puccini's sublime music imbues this ageless story with impossible beauty, from the irrepressible famous aria ‘One fine day' to the intense finale.

South Korean soprano Sae Kyung Rim's voice is in demand the world over and her Butterfly is richly nuanced.
Diego Torre gives Pinkerton complexity and depth through his exemplary technique and timbre. Carlo Montanaro conducts.
