Opera Santa Barbara Presents
by Giacomo Puccini
One of the world's most beloved operas, Madame Butterfly is a story of romance, tradition, and sacrifice. Cio-cio-san, known as Butterfly, is a geisha who catches the fancy of a U.S. Naval officer. They wed, but when his tour is over, he blithely abandons his Japanese bride. Butterfly faithfully awaits his return; when he at last appears, she realizes she has been betrayed and resolves to restore her honor. Returning to Santa Barbara for the first time since 2003, Butterfly never fails to wring the tears and win the hearts of audiences everywhere with its powerful, achingly beautiful music: this is Puccini at his finest!
(Performed in Italian with English translations above the stage.)
