Madama Butterfly: A Stirring Experience at San Diego Civic Theatre

Get ready for an unforgettable night at San Diego Civic Theatre, where Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly promises to tug at your heartstrings with its poignant and timeless narrative.

This opera, one of Puccini’s most celebrated works, offers an evening of passionate highs and devastating lows, all set against the beautiful, tragic backdrop of Nagasaki.

Madama Butterfly at San Diego Civic Theatre

Imagine the delicate cherry blossoms in Japan where our heroine, a young geisha, stands resilient amidst life’s harsh trials. Her world turns upside down when she meets an American Naval Officer, falling deeply in love without knowing she’s merely a fleeting escape for him.

As she renounces her religion for him and awaits his promised return, the unfolding tragedy will leave no eye dry in the house.

Featuring the incredible talents of soprano Corinne Winters and tenor Adam Smith, this production by the San Diego Opera is a must-see. Winters, returning after her acclaimed performance in La traviata, and Smith, making his company debut, bring to life the heartbreaking story of love and loss.
