Madama Butterfly

6th March 2022

 

Senbla presents Opera International’s award-winning Ellen Kent Production featuring the Ukrainian National Municipal Opera Kyiv, with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra.

Puccini: Madama Butterfly

WINNER ‘BEST OPERA AWARD’
Liverpool Daily Post Theatre Awards

“Above all it was a production which captured the raw emotion at the centre of the opera. Don’t take a handkerchief with you, take a box of them.” The Independent

Welcoming back the fabulous Korean soprano Elena Dee, Ukrainian sopranos Alyona Kistenyova and Katerina Timbaliuk from the Odessa Opera* together with celebrated Ukrainian mezzo soprano Irina Sproglis*.

Back by overwhelming public demand, this award-winning Opera returns in a new production with exquisite sets including a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costumes including antique wedding kimonos from Japan.

One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heart-breaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results. Highlights include the melodic ‘Humming Chorus’, the moving aria ‘One Fine Day’ and the unforgettable ‘Love Duet’.

Live performance sung in Italian with English subtitles.

*Cast subject to Change.

Event Reviews

  • Patricia

    Wonderful performances and orchestra.
    So good to be back in live Theatre.
    Finale support to the brave Ukrainian people very moving,brought me to Tears

    They where amazing. I feel really bad for booing at Mr Pilinson at the end…. the boo was for the part he played… not for him. But we where not aware that the cast was Ukrainian. I am fully behind them. They are so brave.

  • Dorothy

    Wonderful performance this evening.
    A truly moving experience to end the evening.
    The Ukrainian National Anthem along with sustained applause.

  • Richard

    Well, I thought the opera was going to be emotional but at the end when the Ukrainian flag was brought out to a huge cheer from the audience to be followed by the cast singing the Ukrainian National Anthem, accompanied by clapping from the audience, wow. I felt suddenly very proud of the British people.
