Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica, after the play Madama Butterfly by David Belasco, after a short story by John Luther Long.
Madama Butterfly is one of the most staged operas in the whole world. The tragic story of the geisha Cio Cio San, better known as Madama Butterfly, touches all audiences. Puccini’s innate talent narrates the terrible conflict between two irreconcilable civilizations.
Stage director Mario Gas takes a different angle, by setting the story in a 1930s cinema set. He narrates the poignant drama from three simultaneous perspectives for an even more marvelous experience of this classic by Giacomo Puccini.
