Behind exotic timbres and unforgettable melodies, Puccini's seductive score of Madama Butterfly conceals an almost cutting tragedy that hits the listener right in the heart. It is a classic love story that never moves, a tragic romance that sweeps you away in all its intensity. Combining authentic Japanese music with lush European harmonies and orchestrations, the opera is an irresistible fusion of East and West. Puccini's opera makes its festival debut at Glyndebourne only in 2018, for which director Annilese Miskimmon created a thought-provoking production that updates the original turn-of-the-century setting to the 1950s and confronts the darker political and emotional currents of a work that acknowledges that there are some barriers too high for love to overcome. This love story has no chance of a happy ending.
