The Atlanta Opera’s Madama Butterfly

$10 per Student

Cultures collide when the young Japanese geisha Butterfly marries B.F. Pinkerton, a dashing American naval officer. Rejected by her family, she attempts to forge a new life and identity, with tragic results. Butterfly’s very human story is for anyone who has ever felt the excitement of infatuation, the longing for a distant loved one, the sting of familial disapproval, the ache of rejection, and the courage to make impossible choices.
Opera combines music, drama, and dance with visual art and powerful stagecraft to tell stories with a unique visceral impact. There is simply nothing quite like hearing and seeing live opera, and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of opera’s the most beloved stories. This 75-minute reduction of the full-length opera features the principal singers, chorus and orchestra of The Atlanta Opera. Students will enjoy the visual spectacle of this beautiful new production, which features gorgeous sets, costumes, and projections to accompany some of the most glorious music ever written.
This event is for high school students only, the content is most appropriate for 9th-12th graders.
