Hiromi Omura stars as Butterfly, the Japanese girl who marries a US naval officer while he is on shore leave. With their child she waits expectantly for his return – but when his ship finally arrives, he is accompanied by his new American wife. Stricken by grief, Butterfly commits suicide, choosing to die with honour rather than live with shame. Relive the beauty and tragedy of Madama Butterfly, in all the splendour and elegance of Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour.
