Content
Tragedia giapponese in three acts
Libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa after a stage play by David Belasco
In Italian with German surtitles
ca. 3 ¼ Stunden, one interval
For all from 14 upwards
To sweeten the time during his stationing in Japan, the American naval lieutenant Pinkerton enters into a marriage with the geisha Cio-Cio San. What is harmless fun for the soldier means great love for the young woman. Even when Pinkerton leaves her shortly after the wedding, Cio-Cio San holds on to the hope of a future together. And indeed Pinkerton returns - with his new American wife by his side...

For a long time, Giacomo Puccini searched in vain for material that would once again tickle his dramatic instincts after the success of his “Tosca”. He found it in David Belasco's play “Madama Butterfly. A tragedy of Japan”, which he transformed into a moving musical tragedy in 1904.
