Madama Butterfly

Thursday 11th July 2019 - Starts 6.50pm


Spend a evening “at the opera” as we present Madam Butterfly on the big screen.

Puccini’s Japanese tragedy Madama Butterfly is given a ravishing production by The Royal Opera. Its alluring imagery of Japan from the 19th-century European Imagination heightens the intense clash of East and West. When the American naval officer Pinkerton seduces the young ‘Butterfly’ Cio-Cio-San, he seems to promise every happiness – but his cruel abandonment leads to her tragic self-sacrifice.

Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera,  is renowned for his interpretations of Puccini, and conducts an exceptionally fine cast with the Royal Opera Chorus and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.

Powerful performances show why Madama Butterfly remains one of the all-time operatic favourites.

The event begins with a brief talk at 6.50pm with the screening at 7pm. There will be a 20 minute interval with an estimated finish of 10.15pm.
