Help Us Create An Opera

OperaUpClose is producing a ground-breaking new English version of Puccini’s Madam Butterfly and we're asking you to help us to create it!

In association with Belgrade Theatre in Coventry, we are producing a new English version of Puccini’s Madam Butterfly. One of the best-loved operas of all time, Madam Butterfly’s glorious music and tragic story have enchanted audiences for more than a century. This ground-breaking reimagining of Puccini’s masterpiece will be told from a female, East-Asian perspective, performed by a diverse-led cast of talented singers and instrumentalists.
