Cape Town Theatre: Madame Butterfly

Madame Butterfly is a torrid story about clashing cultures, innocence destroyed and a final act too tragic for unsung words that makes Madame Butterfly the ultimate opera experience. Puccini himself called it the most deeply felt and imaginative opera of his career, which perhaps explains why he reviewed and rewrote it 5 times. The version popular today, referred to as the standard version, was his 5th version of the story.
Composer :Giacomo Puccini
Director :Christine Crouse
Conductor :Fransisco Bonnin
Costume and Set Design :Michael Mitchell

Am looking forward to seeing Madame Butterfly, was meant to see it this weekend, but things didn't quite work out - it's the number one most performed opera in America.
