Madame Butterfly

This new production is by Australia’s most famous choreographer, Graeme Murphy. It's a contemporary look at Puccini's alluring heroine. He captures the grace and gravity of a tale that begins in rapturous love and ends in cruel heartbreak.

The production features floor-to-ceiling LED panels as a dynamic set. Fragments of film flutter across the stage. Puccini's sublime music imbues this ageless story with beauty, from the irrepressible aria 'Un bel dì' ('One fine day') to the intense finale.
