Madame Butterfly (Burnie)

Opera Australia


A man enchanted by the beauty of the East.
A woman in love with the promise of the West.

Separated by a vast ocean and many years, what will become of their love? Madame Butterfly is a love story that reaches across cultures, across oceans, across time.

Puccini’s popular opera inspired the musical Miss Saigon. It is filled with gorgeous music, from the lovers’ first rapturous embrace to the intense finale.

One of Australia’s greatest theatrical minds, John Bell, directs this English-language production, complete with beautiful costumes and sets.

Hear Opera Australia’s wonderful singers perform with a chamber orchestra, along with a children’s chorus, drawn from local communities.

Performed in English.
