Director Caroline Stacey and Melbourne Opera are restaging their production of Madame Butterfly, ten years after it was first mounted to great acclaim, nominated for Seven Green Room Awards.

“A moving and beautiful production” The Age

Madame Butterfly tells the moving tale of Cio-Cio San, a young Japanese geisha tricked into marrying cynical American Lieutenant Pinkerton. After the marriage of convenience he departs, promising to return soon. When he finally does, it is with tragic results. The opera features some of the most moving and beautiful music composed by Puccini, including the famous aria One Fine Day.

An outstanding cast is led by international soprano Antoinette Halloran and Chinese-Australian soprano Emily Wang who share the role of the doomed Cio-Cio San, the tragic heroine. It is Emily Wang’s debut in the role. Powerful tenors Jason Wasley and David Rogers-Smith will share the role of Lieutenant Pinkerton.
