English National Opera’s production of Puccini’s classic opera Madam Butterfly is currently playing at the London Coliseum.

Directed by the late, great Anthony Minghella , this ENO production garned some great reviews (“the most beautiful show of the year in operatic London” The Telegraph) and is an unforgettable staging of this classic opera.

Puccini’s tragic love story tells of Butterfly, a young Japanese girl who falls in love with American naval officer Pinkerton. Shortly after their wedding, Pinkerton returns to America: Butterfly gives birth to a son and patiently awaits her husband’s return, never giving up hope.
