Photo Flash: First Look at Pittsburgh Opera's MADAMA BUTTERFLY

Pittsburgh Opera opens its 80th season with Puccini's Madama Butterfly. Set in early 1900s Japan, Madama Butterfly is often considered the pinnacle of operatic tragedy, and has become one of today's most beloved operas.

Madama Butterfly follows the tragic love story of the innocent and naive geisha Cio-Cio San and the callous US naval officer Lieutenant Pinkerton.

Cio-Cio San, while still a teenager, forsakes her family, heritage, and religion for Pinkerton. But what she considers to be true love, he considers a casual fling. Cio-Cio San clings to the increasingly unrealistic belief that Pinkerton will return to her. Accompanied by an achingly beautiful score, Madama Butterfly promises to be an unforgettable experience. Music Director Antony Walker conducts the Pittsburgh Opera Orchestra and Chorus. Linda Brovsky directs.

On stage October 6, 9, 12 & 14, Madama Butterfly is unparalleled in its deeply affecting portrayal of love, betrayal, and sacrifice. Adult tickets start at just $14 - with children's tickets for those ages 6-18 starting at just $7. Season tickets are now on sale and available online; single tickets go on sale August 27th.
