Madame Butterfly

27 September 2018

Melbourne City Ballet

Who cannot live with honour, must die with honour ...

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.

Directed by Michael Pappalardo
Choreographed by Michael Pappalardo

Presented by Cessnock Performing Arts Centre.

1 hour 30 minutes, including interval
