Puccini’s heartbreakingly beautiful Madame Butterfly tells the tale of an American naval officer, Pinkerton (Dominick Chenes), who recklessly takes Cio-Cio-San (Yunah Lee) Butterfly as his bride, knowing that their time together in Japan will be fleeting. Cio-Cio-San clings to her love for Pinkerton as she awaits his return to Japan … a return that she refuses to acknowledge may never come. The depth and purity of Cio-Cio-San’s love  and her inevitable and tragic end is brought into stunning relief against Puccini’s unforgettable score.
