Mark Down, of Blind Summit Theatre, the creators behind the puppetry in ENO's Madam Butterfly, talks through the creation and bringing to life of one of the most unforgettable characters in Puccini's heart-rending story.
Madam Butterfly is one of opera’s most enduring tales of unrequited love. With its breathtaking mix of cinematic images, traditional Japanese theatre, colourful costumes and stunning sets, Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning production has been hailed as ‘the most beautiful show of the year’ (Sunday Telegraph).
Richard Armstrong conducts Puccini’s heart-rending score. The superb cast is led by American soprano Rena Harms as Butterfly and British tenor David Butt Philip in his role debut as Pinkerton.
See Madam Butterfly at the London Coliseum from 26 February - 17 April 2020.

About English National Opera:
English National Opera is founded on the belief that opera of the highest quality should be accessible to everyone.
At ENO opera is theatre; expressing drama through the unique combination of music, text, dance and design. We sing in English. We believe that singing in our own language connects the performers and the audiences to the drama on stage, and enhances the experience for all.
We collaborate across contemporary art forms, to reflect the growing diversity of our culture. And we take a fresh approach right across the repertoire, from baroque to contemporary, as well as commissioning new works as part of our commitment to the future of the art form.
We bring our productions to the widest possible audience, whether at the London Coliseum, nationally or internationally. We make our work accessible by offering a large proportion of tickets at affordable prices, and by distributing it widely on screen and digital media.
We also aim to introduce completely new audiences to the magic of opera through stimulating and creative participation programmes.
Nurturing Creative talent
We are a national company of internationally recognised standard. We nurture talent across the entire company, whether on stage, backstage, or in the pit. We provide a platform for young singers to develop global careers.
We tell the world’s most timeless stories, unforgettably.
