Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre and Melbourne City Ballet Love, honour and loyalty are put to the test in the tragic tale of #MadameButterfly. The beautiful Japanese geisha, Cho-Cho (nicknamed Butterfly) hopelessly clings to the belief that her marriage to Lieutenant Pinkerton, an American naval officer, is a loving and eternal relationship. It is however, not to be. It is only upon Pinkerton’s return that Butterfly realise their union was not as she thought, ending in one of opera’s most infamous tragedies. The beauty of exquisite and sensitive choreography together with Puccini’s score has made Melbourne City Ballet’s Madame Butterfly a tender and romantic production, not to be missed. Redeveloped into a newly choreographed three-act ballet, Melbourne City Ballet’s production will capture the story’s essence through the fusion of traditional Japanese and classical ballet movement.

The production showcases the company’s exquisite choreography and versatility, whilst featuring impressive new scenery, beautiful oriental costumes and of course Puccini’s evocative score. Audiences are rarely given the opportunity to see Madame Butterfly performed as a full length ballet and this certainly is a production not to be missed.
