Tuesday 28 January 7.30pm, The Hawth Crawley
The award-winning producer Ellen Kent returns in 2020 with the tragedy, Madama Butterfly featuring international soloists, full chorus, and orchestra.
Ellen Kent’s stunning traditional production of Puccini’s masterpiece Madama Butterfly, one of the world’s most popular operas, comes to The Hawth Crawley on Tuesday 28 January.
The fabulous international Korean soprano Elena Dee returns to sing her critically acclaimed role as Cio Cio San, together with the international soprano Alyona Kistenyova* along with full orchestra and chorus.
Madama Butterfly is Puccini’s tragic tale which the hit West End musical Miss Saigon is based on. One of the world’s most popular operas, it 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 Un bel di vedremo (One Fine Day), the famous tenor aria Amore o grillo (Love or fancy) and the unforgettable Bimba, Bimba, non piangere (Love Duet).
With exquisite sets featuring a spectacular Japanese garden and fabulous costuming including antique wedding kimonos from Japan, the story will be told in the original Italian with English subtitles. As with any of Ellen Kent’s shows, Madama Butterfly is set to be a visually beautiful and moving production.
