Madam Butterfly at the London Coliseum

Madam Butterfly is one of opera’s most enduring tales of unrequited love. With its breathtaking mix of cinematic images, traditional Japanese theatre, colourful costumes and stunning sets, Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning production has been hailed as ‘the most beautiful show of the year’ (Sunday Telegraph).

Richard Armstrong conducts Puccini’s heart-rending score. The superb cast is led by American soprano Rena Harms as Butterfly and British tenor David Butt Philip in his role debut as Pinkerton

Akhnaten plays a limited season from 16 May 2016 until 7 July 2016 at the London Coliseum.

STORY

Day after day, week after week, month after month, she waits for him. She knows that a love as perfect as hers, as pure and powerful, could never fail to bring him back, across the ocean. He will return. She is sure he will. One fine day.
