Details: The tragedy "Madama Butterfly" returns to the Royal Opera of Wallonia-Liège for a series of performances in setting powerful scene supervised by Stefano Di Mazzonis Pralafera.

"The most sincere and the most expressive" is how Puccini considered his opera "Madama Butterfly" among all others - recognized as a result of the success of Tosca. Inspired by actual fact, the story is originally written by playwright David Belasco. This tragedy makes us discover a disastrous love affair between a Geisha and an American officer in Japan vanquished after 1945.
