Where music and drama find each other
Set in Nagasaki in 1904, this haunting work tells the bittersweet tale of a young, unworldly geisha who falls in love with a callous visiting American Naval Officer. Madama Butterfly’s unwavering love for the Lieutenant who deserts her is an enduring tale of seduction and betrayal.
Next season, we’ll be showcasing Puccini’s Tosca conducted by our former artistic director Tyrone Paterson. The spring will bring a very special Downtown Abbey themed The Marriage of Figaro, introducing our interim artistic director, Kevin Mallon. And watch for a host of special events coming throughout the year!
