Northern Ballet is performing Madame Butterfly at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham from 9th-13th October.

Northern Ballet’s Madame Butterfly is based on the original Belasco play that inspired the great opera. This heart-rending tale of love and infidelity, involves a young geisha who marries Lieutenant Pinkerton, a dashing naval officer, only to be abandoned by him while carrying his unborn child.

The loyal Butterfly awaits her husband’s return, valiantly raising their son alone in a society which has ostracised her. When Pinkerton eventually returns to Nagaski with his new American wife, Butterfly’s doomed fate and that of her young son are sealed.
