About the work

Opera in three acts Sung in Italian Subtitles in Portuguese Length: 2h with small intermisson The Garden of the National Museum for Ancient Art has the perfect geography to recreate in Lisbon, the little house, on the top of the hill, with view to Nagasaki Port, in which tragic love between young Japanese geisha Cio-cio San and the lieutenant of the American navy, Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton, takes place. From the beginning of this story, tragedy is eminent. Not her faithful servant Suzuki, nor the American consul Sharpless, nor even Goro, the heartless marriage broker, who first architects this felony and later on, tries to help her out of it - all efforts are helpless to move away relentless faith of Butterfly in Pinkerton’s love. The audience confident follows Butterfly’s metamorphosis from young innocent girl to tragic heroin, taking her destiny in her own hands. One of the most moving operas of all time, composed by master of emotion Giacomo Puccini (1904), with a score filled with Japanese and oriental inspired themes and sublime music.
