Opera in three acts
Libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa after John Luther Long und David Belasco.

Puccini's Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular operas of our time. In the dramatic story of the Japanese geisha Cio-Cio-San, called Butterfly, worlds and values collide: while her American lover feels free and marries an American woman in his homeland, Butterfly, full of love, hope and longing, waits three long years for his return to Japan - together with her child.

Performed for the first time on the Bregenz Seebühne in a spectacular stage setting, Michael Levine's enchanting stage design with its subtle landscape paintings brings Japanese flair to Lake Constance, while stage manager Andreas Homoki says: "With the Seebühne, it is above all the interplay of video and painting that makes it possible to set the stage, including the ink drawings, in ever new moods," which became a magnificent production.
