One of the best-loved operas of all time, Madam Butterfly’s glorious music and tragic heroine have enchanted audiences for more than a century. This summer, we'll be running a week of Research and Development, with the intention to re-imagine Puccini's masterpiece from a female, East-Asian led creative team, performed by a diverse-led cast of talented singers and musicians.
The production will open at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry on 24 January 2019 followed by an extensive UK tour, including a four-week run at East London's Arcola Theatre from Wed 6 Feb - Sat 2 Mar.
