Santa Fe Opera
Music by Giacomo Puccini
Libretto by Luigi Illica & Giuseppe Giacosa
A young Japanese geisha clings to the belief that her arranged marriage with a visiting American naval officer will be loving and permanent. One of Giacomo Puccini’s greatest accomplishments, Madama Butterfly explores themes of cultural and marital imperialism, and the tragic consequences of dashed hopes. Butterfly is a delicate and touching classic.
