Anthony Minghella’s vividly cinematic staging of Puccini’s tale of unrequited love returns to our screens featuring soprano Hui He in the devastating title role.

One of the most frequently staged operas of our generation, Madama Butterfly follows the story of a young Japanese girl, Cio-Cio San, who falls in love with Pinkerton, an American naval officer. Tragedy unfolds in this sweeping  production, which is a perennial audience favourite. Starring Plácido Domingo and conducted by Pier Giorgio Morandi, this is one opera’s most beautiful and heartbreaking scores.
