Love, honour and loyalty are put to the test in the tragic tale of Madame Butterfly.
The beautiful Japanese geisha, Cio-Cio-San hopelessly clings to the belief that her marriage to Lieutenant Pinkerton, an American naval officer, is a loving and eternal relationship. It is however, not to be.
The beauty of exquisite and sensitive choreography together with Puccini’s score has made Melbourne City Ballet’s Madame Butterfly a tender and romantic production, not to be missed.
