Sharpless: Madam Butterfly (New Zealand) @ Hannah Playhouse, Wellington
Nov 18 @ 7:00 pm

Butterfly… Hannah Catrin Jones
Pinkerton… Boyd Owen
Sharpless… Kieran Rayner
Suzuki… Laura Loach

After their critically acclaimed debut production of “Don Giovanni” in 2016 and “The Marriage of Figaro” in 2017, Eternity Opera is returning with Puccini’s 1903 masterpiece “Madam Butterfly”.

“Madam Butterfly” follows a beautifully traced arc for the title character, from the young bride who renounces her religion to embrace all things American to the strong young mother who returns to her culture and the code of honor that governs her tragic destiny.

With gorgeous period costumes and designs, and featuring much of Puccini’s most lyrical music, including the Humming Chorus, Flower Duet, the stunning aria in “Un bel dì,” and a spine-tingling climax.

Performed in English by a lineup of top New Zealand singers, this will be directed by Alex Galvin and conducted by Matthew Ross, with support from the Eternity Chamber Orchestra.
