Back by overwhelming public demand, Ellen Kent’s award-winning opera returns, with exquisite sets, such as the stunning Japanese garden and spectacular costumes including antique wedding kimonos from Japan.

One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heartbreaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results.
