Madame Butterfly – Puccini
Heritage Opera, Northwest England’s professional touring opera company, visits The Broadway Peterborough with Puccini’s Madame Butterfly- the heartbreaking story of Cio Cio San, the Nagasaki geisha, and her unwavering belief that the husband she adores, Lieutenant BF Pinkerton of the United States Navy, who married then deserted her, will one day return.
Containing some of the most beautiful of Puccini’s music, including the famous aria Un Bel Di (‘One Fine Day’), and the moving Humming Chorus, the drama builds to its tragic conclusion.
Sarah Helsby Hughes plays the trusting Cio Cio San – ‘Madame Butterfly’, Nicholas Sales is the arrogant Pinkerton, and Serenna Wagner plays the
faithful servant Suzuki. They are supported by a cast of seven professional singers, and an orchestral ensemble of 11 players.
