The opera Madame Butterfly at Les Arts

Categories: show.


TOURISTIC AREA: City of Arts and Alameda

Madame Butterfly, one of the 20th century’s most important operas, is coming to Les Arts this 10th to 22nd December. A great opportunity to enjoy this magnificent work – which has become a symbol of condemnation of racism and colonialism – starring soprano Marina Rebeka.


The Latvian singer, acclaimed on today’s lyric stage, adds the role of the unfortunate Japanese geisha to her repertoire. Her character, an icon of female bravery, will capture the audience’s heart. The opera is set against a bleak landscape, following the destruction caused by the atomic bomb on Nagasaki (Japan).


This beautiful Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía production will also feature Italian tenor Piero Pretti, along with Àngel Òdena and Valencia’s Cristina Faus in key supporting roles.


Musical direction is under the charge of Maestro Antonino Fogliani, a regular at major theatres in Geneva, Zürich and Munich. The stage director will be Valencian Emilio López.


Tickets for performances of Madame Butterfly are available here.
