A young Japanese geisha falls head-over-heels in love with her new American husband. She believes their love is real, even after three years without so much as a word from him. Everyone around her knows the truth. They try to convince her to move on but she won't. She can't. Rejected by her past, and forgotten by the man she loves, she waits.

Madama Butterfly is one of the world's most famous love stories and this legendary production has been performed in Sydney more than any other. The set and costume design is inspired by Japan and the combination of wood, water, silk and flame is astonishingly elegant. Now it comes to the Capitol Theatre for a short season.

Karah Son and Hyesoung Kwon sing Puccini's much-loved music, breathtakingly beautiful from first love to tragic end.

Then, with a heart full of song, watch the fireworks the whole world watches. Interval is timed for the 9pm fireworks and the Sydney Opera House stays open well past the midnight fireworks.
