Puccini wrote some of his most achingly compelling music into this story of a young girl’s love and disillusionment. This new, stylish production has a genuine Japanese touch. Love, longing and tears are what we know to expect, but this production will also include music not usually heard. Puccini revised Madama Butterfly several times after its unsuccessful premiere, and the version performed in this production is no. 2 – for the first time at the FNOB.
