Madama Butterfly, the story of a young Japanese geisha who takes her own life for love, is set in Nagasaki, Japan, in the 1900s by the great Italian composer Giacomo Puccini and it is his most famous and acclaimed opera. The melodic richness of Puccini’s music, coupled with the beauty of the score by Illica and Giacosa transforms this fragile love-drunk girl into a monumental female persona.

This version avails itself of prestigious, internationally acclaimed, voices such as Soprano Monica De Rosa McKay in the title role of Cio-Cio San, the Tenor Gian Luca Pasolini as B.F.Pinkerton, the Baritone Gianfranco Montresor as Sharpless and the Mezzo-soprano Agata Bienkowska in the role of Suzuki accompanied by the pianist-conductor Piero Corradino Giovanni­ni. The entire opera is presented within an Oriental atmosphere with scenography especially designed for the stage by the italian scenographer Massima Barone and directed by Alex Broun. An English-speaking actress will narrate within her acting an interpretation of her point of view on events, allowing the audience and those new to opera to enjoy the show.

This concert, under the patronage of the Italian Industry and Commerce Office in the UAE, is one of the key events in the calendar of the Italian Festival Weeks 2015, the annual cultural, social and economic forum organized by the Italian Industry & Commerce Office in the UAE.
