The heat-breaking tale of love, loyalty and honour is told in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. When her American husband Pinkerton returns home, Cio-Cio-San (Madama Butterfly) is left to raise her young child on her own while expectantly waiting for her husband to return. After three long years, Cio-Cio-San is reunited with her husband only to find that he has taken an American wife. Unable to live with the dishonour and loss, Madama Butterfly secures the future of her child and then takes her own life.
