By Giacomo Puccini

Internationally beloved for over a century, Puccini’s timeless classic enchants with glorious music of unparalleled passion and pathos. The elegant narrative recounts the whirlwind romance between a reckless American naval officer and a trusting geisha. Bound by tradition and honor, she alone must face the tragic aftermath when left abandoned. Musical highlights include the radiant “Flower Duet,” Butterfly’s poignant arias, and a rapturous love duet for the ages.

Kate Cherry’s “sublime, visually fantastic, must-see” (stuff.co.nz) production features new-to-Seattle sets and costumes, and the traditional staging also tips its hat to stylized Japanese theater.

In Italian with English subtitles

Approximate Running Time: 2 hours, 55 minutes, with 1 intermission
