Part of The Glyndebourne Tour 2016

Glyndebourne Madama Butterfly



Wednesday 7 - Saturday 10 December 2016 Download Calendar

The Lyric


A new production for Tour 2016

Puccini loved to portray ‘great sorrows in little souls’, as he put it, and never did he do so more stirringly than in Madama Butterfly. Derived from a true story of a Japanese geisha married and abandoned by an American sailor, Puccini’s popular masterwork unfolds a disastrous clash of East and West.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Free pre-performance talk on Wednesday 7 December, 6.15pm.
Free bite-sized introductions to the operas. Each talk is presented by an opera expert and lasts 30 minutes. Tickets are available only to ticket holders on the same day of the performance.
