Puccini's master piece MADAMA BUTTERFLY is back at the Royal Swedish Opera


A dramatic love story that opens with the grandiose wedding between the American lieutenant Pinkerton and his beloved Butterfly. She trusts his promise of eternal fidelity and love, but he goes home, leaving her behind. She is prepared to wait for him for as long as it takes. When Pinkerton finally returns, he finds a confused woman and her child, still at the now deserted place where they were married ...

Giacomo Puccini’s opera about Cio-Cio-San, known as Butterfly, who rejects her family, her religious faith and her culture to marry the American lieutenant Pinkerton, is among the most popular and frequently performed operas. This production was a major success when it premiered at the Royal Swedish Opera in 2014. Butterfly is sung by the critically acclaimed and internationally celebrated soprano Eri Nakamura.
