About the Event
Enter the magical atmosphere of Puccini's tragic love story, Madame Butterfly, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
All his life Puccini declared Madame Butterfly to be his favorite work, as well as his best. The work is a perfect reflection of his maxim of “the music of little things”. Intricate musical details, captivating melodies, discreet exotic elements, and a sensitive blend of tones in the orchestra have assured this opera's immortality.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
