Opera Santa Barbara presents Madame Butterfly

Opera Santa Barbara 

FRI. NOV. 2, 7:30PM

SUN. NOV. 4, 2:30PM

One of the world's most beloved operas, Madame Butterfly is a story of 
romance, tradition, and sacrifice. Cio-cio-san, known as Butterfly, is a 
geisha who catches the fancy of a U.S. Naval officer. They wed, but when 
his tour is over, he blithely abandons his Japanese bride. Butterfly faithfully 
awaits his return;  when he at last appears, she realizes she has been
 betrayed and resolves to restore her honor. Returning to Santa Barbara 
for the first time since 2003, Butterfly never fails to wring the tears and win 
the hearts of audiences everywhere with its powerful, achingly beautiful 
music: this is Puccini at his finest!
