About the work

The young Cio-Cio-San, called Butterfly, is married by the American naval officer Pinkerton according to Japanese tradition. While marriage is just an adventure on a business trip for him, Butterfly finds great love in him. After a short time, Pinkerton leaves Butterfly to go back to America and get married there “properly”. She waits for him for three years - until he finally comes back to Japan. But not to return to her ... Director Nina Kupczyk, together with outfitter Silvio Motta, takes the plot to a modern, but often foreign to us Japan. The imaginative world of Butterfly - inspired by the modern Manga style - meets the stuffy reality of Pinkertons. Can there even be anything in common here?
