Opera MADAMA BUTTERFLY by Giacomo Puccini
Arena di Verona Festival 2023-08-16 ... 2023-09-07
The opera Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular operas by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini.

Verona is world famous for the Opera Festival in the Arena di Verona, which attracts millions of music lovers every summer. The Arena di Verona is the world’s largest open-air opera theatre with space for up to 22,000 spectators on the steps of the 45 rows of seats.
Every year we create exclusive music trips to Italy for friends of opera and ballet. Operas of the leading Italian composers Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini and Gioachino Rossini are favourite in the Arena. Enjoy the extraordinary atmosphere at the Roman amphitheatre in the heart of Verona in the summer months under the open sky. Please make your travel plans early and select a performance of interest. Because, if there are less than two months to go, the best tickets might be sold out, the hotels might have increased prices and things may become difficult. With our music tours you get the best seats, on upholstered chairs, together with a nice stay program in Verona.
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 from America and wants to take Butterfly’s son with him. Madame Butterfly stabs herself with her father’s dagger.
The opera Madama Butterfly was first performed at La Scala in Milan in 1904, at that time in two acts. In 1904 the opera was rewritten into three acts. The opera Madama Butterfly is a feature of every opera house and will be performed at the Arena di Verona during the 2023 Summer Festival.
