Madame Butterfly is on the stages. One of the greatest masterpieces by Italian composer Giacomo Puccini is going to be performed at two major theatres in Rome: the Opera House, from Tuesday the 18th, to Friday the 28th of May, and the Teatro Flaiano, from Tuesday the 21st of May to Tuesday the 11th of June.
This vibrant and touching opera is a finest combination of music and drama, and it has been rated among the best operas of all the times. Puccini wrote the first version in 1904, and made several changes in the following years, until a final version was completed in 1907.
The opera is set in Nagasaki, and starts with Pinkerton, a lieutenant in the United States Navy, marrying the young geisha Cio-Cio San. But he soon abandons her, and comes back to his country; Cio-Cio San, distressed but hopeful, waits for her husband to return. Giacomo Puccini skilfully combined a passionate story with his musical genius and Madame Butterfly is the best outcome one could ever have expected.
