Some forthcoming performances at the Sydney Opera House:

Madama Butterfly

Graeme Murphy’s arresting new production for Opera Australia of Puccini's Madama Butterfly is a contemporary look at Puccini’s alluring heroine.

Fragments of film flutter across the stage, creating a dynamic backdrop for Murphy’s vision of Butterfly. He draws on his roots in choreography to capture the grace and gravity of a tale that begins in rapturous love and ends in the cruellest heartbreak.

Puccini’s sublime music imbues this ageless story with impossible beauty, from the irrepressible, famous aria One fine day to the intense finale. Two exceptional casts perform throughout the season. Karah Son returns to Sydney, sharing the role of Cio-Cio-San with Mariana Hong.
