Ellen Kent: Madama Butterfly – featuring the Ukrainian Opera & Ballet Theatre Kyiv at the Forum

21 February @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

WINNER ‘BEST OPERA AWARD’ Liverpool Daily Post Theatre Awards

“Above all it was a production which captured the raw emotion at the centre of the opera. Don’t take a handkerchief with you, take a box of them.” The Independent

Back by overwhelming public demand, this award-winning Opera returns in a new production with exquisite sets including a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costumes including antique wedding kimonos from Japan.

One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heart-breaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results.
Highlights include the melodic ‘Humming Chorus’, the moving aria ‘One Fine Day’ and the unforgettable ‘Love Duet’.

Welcoming back the fabulous Korean soprano Elena Dee, Ukrainian soprano Alyona Kistenyova and Ukrainian mezzo-sopranos Natalia Matveeva and Irina Sproglis.*
