Before there was Miss Saigon, there was Madama Butterfly.
It’s a love story as old as time. Enchanted by the beauty of the east, the American sailor Pinkerton takes a young geisha for his wife. The innocent Butterfly falls helplessly, hopelessly in love.
But every ship must return to its shore, and Pinkerton returns home, leaving Butterfly behind.
Music of impossible beauty traces this story from the lover’s first, rapturous embrace to the intense, powerful finale.
Experience the stunning elegance of this legendary production. Sensuous silken gowns flutter across wooden platforms. Flame dances on water. Cherry blossoms fall from the sky as we wait, with bated breath, alongside the faithful Butterfly.
Adults $65 – $143 / Concessions $59 – $129 / Junior $33 – $72
