Kentucky Opera opens the 2024/25 season with a two-night only, limited run of Puccini’s heartbreaking tragedy Madama Butterfly.

In a groundbreaking production presented in a bold new point of view, Puccini’s haunting score is filled with vulnerability, power, and emotion. This new production of one of opera’s most beloved works is created by an all-AAPI female creative team and directed by Mo Zhou.

Bound by tradition and honor, a young Japanese girl named Cio-Cio-San, known as Madama Butterfly, is faced with the aftermath of trusting and marrying an American naval officer, the reckless, pleasure-seeking B.F. Pinkerton. As Pinkerton’s intentions are revealed, Butterfly’s dreams are destroyed in ways of no return.

Sung in Italian with English captions.
