About this Film

ROH: Madama Butterfly 2017 - Live

ODEON says...
Puccini's 'Madama Butterfly' is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. 

Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production of 'ROH: Madama Butterfly'. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. 

Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride.
