Watch this space for forthcoming dates for our beautiful production of Madame Butterfly.

Nagasaki 1900: Cio Cio San (‘Madame Butterfly’) a naïve girl with passionate dreams of romance, marries Lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton of the US Navy. His ideas of marital commitment are somewhat different to hers, and he soon leaves her to sail back to America. Cio Cio San waits patiently for him for three years, refusing to acknowledge that she has been abandoned, and firmly believing he will one day return to claim her as his wife.

At last, Pinkerton’s ship, the SS Abraham Lincoln is seen on the horizon. For Madame Butterfly, however, there will be no happy ending.

Performances are accompanied either by piano, small or large ensemble, dependent on venue.

    Went to the Epstein last night to see “Butterfly”…Wonderful Wonderful Thank you so very much. Reduced my friend David to tears once again!! You were all in fine voice, as is normal, and it was good that the audience gave you such applause. well deserved. David and I have seen quite a few of your productions over the last few years over at Haigh Hall and Ormskirk, and at the Atkinson. Where , I discovered that you Sarah, was our Carmen when we, the SAOS did “Carmen the Musical” many years ago. I was the “back row” of the chorus. I think we had Clive Morris to thank for that. Wonderful that you have gone from strength to strength since. May you continue to give us many more years of enjoyment.

    I saw Madam Butterfly on tuesday at the Blackwood Institute and would like to say how marvellous it was. I took a friend who has never seen an opera before and she like me thoroughly enjoyed it
