MADAMA BUTTERFLY ON SYDNEY HARBOUR
Genre: Live Show | Rating: CTC
Runtime: 192 Minutes
Ever since it fluttered onto the world's stages in 1904, Puccini’s Japanese tragedy has moved & fascinated audiences. This bold & beautiful staging reveals exactly why the world can’t get enough of Madama Butterfly.
Puccini’s tale of a geisha wooed, married & deserted by a feckless American soldier only who returns with his new wife to reclaim his abandoned child – one of the great, tragic operas!
This opera has been staged on the magnificent water stage, suspended over the harbour against a backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. This outdoor spectacle includes a giant sun and moon - both 12 metres wide - which will rise from the water to hang above the stage where Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura will portray tragic Cio-Cio San with her co-star Georgy Vasiliev who performs the role of Pinkerton.
This production uses lavish sets and marries spectacle with an incisive and sometimes confronting vision of this beloved opera.
