She made the ultimate sacrifice for love

Why See Dallas Opera: Madame Butterfly?


Madama butterfly is the sad tale of Cio Cio or 'Butterfly', a young Japanese girl who believes that with her marriage to the dashing US Naval officer Pinkerton, she has found lasting happiness. But her devotion is misguided, and Pinkerton only sees her and their marriage as a stepping stone for his return to America to find his 'true bride'.

Unaware of this fact, the besotted Butterfly waits for her husband to come back to Japan, only to discover that she has been found wanting...

One of the most widely recognised operas in the world, and has spawned many adaptations in the 110 years since it's premiere at La Scala. Dallas Opera present this extraordinary rendition of this bittersweet tragedy, with the most memorable climatic scene in the canon.
