Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly

Event, Film Screening, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series


madama-butterfly

Everything is working properly and today’s screening will go on as scheduled!

Three act opera, sung in Italian.

The libretto of Madama Butterfly is one of those rare instances in operatic history where the text is actually an improvement over its sources. The dimensions of the opera, the finely etched depictions of its characters, its inexorable progress to its dénouement, and the beautiful verses and dialogue constructed by Giuseppe Giacosa all stand in marked contrast to the writings discussed above. Coupled with Puccini’s emotionally charged musical score, Madama Butterfly produces an effect at once intimate and overwhelming, a haunting portrayal of the dangers of misguided love. 

Presented by Rising Alternative

Due to the technical problems we have been having with our opera server, tickets to opera screenings will only be available for purchase from the box office the day of the screening.  We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work with the company to get these issues resolved.
