Opera Omaha Presents ‘Madama Butterfly’
October 31st, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”1904, an American sailor lands in the port of Nagasaki, Japan, where he meets his bride-not-meant-to-be, and his deception opens the tale that leads to nightmare. Itâ€™s the plot of arguably one of the most iconic operas ever written, Pucciniâ€™s Madama Butterfly, making its return to Opera Omaha this weekend. Itâ€™s also the return of Opera Omahaâ€™s historic collaboration with famed local artist, Jun Kaneko, working with Director Leslie Swackhamer.
Kanekoâ€™s minimalist, yet careful design, in conjunction with Pucciniâ€™s unforgettable music and the work of the entire creative team and cast have illuminated Madama Butterfly for audiences of the 21st century.
Opera Omaha will present Madama Butterfly Friday November 1 at 7:30pm and Sunday November 3 at 2:00pm at the Orpheum Theatre. For tickets or information on the performances or related events, visit OperaOmaha.org
