Considered Puccini's greatest operatic masterpiece, Madama Butterfly explores the depth of human emotions through tender duets and breathtaking arias. Set in Nagasaki, Japan, an innocent geisha's love for an American naval officer begins with hope but ends in despair. Blossoms of love turn into tears of betrayal as Cio-Cio San is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice.
