Madame Butterfly – Opera

Puccini’s masterpiece, Madama Butterfly, returns after over a decade as a NEW PRODUCTION of the “Festival Puccini di Torre di Lago” in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Culture.

An exceptional directorial concept by Manu Lalli, centered on The nature of the woman, which is lush and innocent, which dies from the lack of care, attention, and love; The “tortured” planet that predicts the approach of this end without any divine intervention, with a libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, this opera deals with significant social problems, which unmask the morality of society.

The beautiful 15-year-old geisha is loyal to the American Lieutenant Pinkerton and hopes that he will return to her arms. Although three years have passed since his departure, Butterfly, now the mother of a son, the fruit of her marriage with Pinkerton, refuses to start a new life and forget the lover of her heart. The latter, married to an American woman, returns to Nagasaki to take his 3-year-old son. Disappointed and depressed, Butterfly hands her son over to him and kills herself.
