The opera is one of the most popular operas by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini.
The libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica is based on the 1898 story Madame Butterfly by John Luther Long and the tragedy Madame Butterfly.
The action takes place around the turn of the century in Japan, near Nagasaki. Butterfly is the geisha of an American naval officer who marries Butterfly. Butterfly is rejected by her family and her husband left her shortly after the wedding. When he comes back, he brings his new wife with him from America and wants to take Butterfly’s son to live with him. Madame Butterfly stabs herself with her father’s dagger.
The opera premiered at La Scala in Milan in 1904, at that time in two acts. In 1904 the opera was rewritten in three acts. The opera Madama Butterfly is not missing at any opera house.
