Madama Butterfly is the first of Puccini’s operas to be performed in a foreign setting. While working, the composer studied music (types of melody, instruments) and Japanese traditions. The main character is presented in the most detailed psychological terms: as a happy lover, hopeful, a faithful and faithful wife, a disappointed woman, abandoned, calm and confident in her decision before death – in every situation, “Ms. Butterfly” awakens. attract the listener and dominate the stage.
The authors of the libretto referred to several literary sources: Pierre Loti’s French novel Madame Chrysantheme, John Luther Long’s short story Madame Butterfly and David Belasco’s play of the same title and basis. Although the main character of the opera, Cho-Cho San, owes his nickname to the family emblem carved in the shape of a butterfly, a deeper symbolism can be found in it.
Puccini’s opera, considered a work of faith, is performed with great success on stages around the world.
The geisha drama taking place in an exotic setting was subtly realized, extracting all the beauty of the music from the score, maintaining psychological fidelity, pleasing harmony and using modern lighting technology.
