From 11 January: Puccini's beautiful opera about hope and crushed dreams

Puccini’s beautiful opera about hope and crushed dreams

A young Japanese girl meets an American naval officer, she with a dream of American freedom and he with a longing for the exotic East. But is it really love or the perfect example of the attraction of opposites? Madama Butterfly is a story about culture clash and crushed dreams set to Puccini’s exquisite music.

In the most famous aria, ‘Un bel di’, Madama Butterfly – or Cio-Cio San as she is called – sings about ‘one fine day’ – the day when the American officer Pinkerton will return to Nagasaki for her and their son. To him, his marriage to the Japanese geisha is for fun, while she takes it very seriously.

Everyone around Cio-Cio San realises that her dream will never come true. All the same, no one can take from her the intense hope that a miracle might happen. But when Pinkerton returns three years later with his American wife, the encounter is a rude awakening.
