Madam Butterfly (Or Bangkok Butterfly) is transplanted to present-day Bangkok for this radical reinterpretation of Puccini’s masterpiece.
This brand new English translation portrays Pinkerton as an American Airlines pilot and Butterfly as a Thai prostitute. The orchestral score has been delicately arranged for the King’s Head theatre’s intimate space with piano, violin and clarinet.
Madam Butterfly (Or Bangkok Butterfly) is directed by OperaUpClose Artistic Director Adam Spreadbury-Maher, making his opera directing debut for the company.
