Be part of the dedicated group of supporters who bring the much loved Madama Butterfly back to the Glyndebourne stage.

HELP US TO BRING ANNILESE MISKIMMON’S THOUGHT-PROVOKING PRODUCTION of Madama Butterfly to the Glyndebourne Tour

When an innocent young Geisha meets an American naval officer she falls instantly and deeply in love. Giving up her family and her faith, she risks all in marriage to the dashing Lieutenant Pinkerton. But her fragile happiness cannot last. Soon love turns to abandonment and betrayal, and Butterfly is forced to make one final, agonising sacrifice.

This production updates the original turn-of-the-century setting to the 1950s, confronting the darker political and emotional currents of a work that acknowledges that there are some barriers too great for even love to conquer.
