Puccini Festival 2019: Madama Butterfly

There are currently no dates available for this event.

Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Puccini at Torre del Lago's remarkable Gran Teatro all'aperto.

Puccini wrote his opera after seeing a performance of the one-act play 'Madame Butterfly' in 1900. The tragic story of the love between a Japanese girl and an American sailor became the passionate and evocative three-act opera that premiered at Milan’s La Scala Opera Theatre in 1904. Puccini researched Japanese music and the librettist even travelled to Japan to get a feeling for the culture.
