OperaWednesday: Madama Butterfly
At the weekly OperaWednesday on Wednesdays at 8 p.m., highlights of the operas that had to be cancelled are broadcasted.The performance is streamed from the Sándor Hevesi Stage of the Eiffel Art Studios from 8:00 p.m.

Opera in three acts, in Italian with Hungarian and English surtitles

The tale of Cio-Cio san and Pinkerton stands out as one of the finest romantic tragedies ever written.

Convinced that her 'temporary marriage' is not only legally binding, but also founded on reciprocated feelings, 'Madama' Butterfly loses every last shred of hope, until death offers the only possible escape.

'Had it not been set in an exotic locale far from here,' went the commentary on the play that inspired the libretto, 'the suffering would be unbearable.' For opera lovers, Puccini's wonderful music elevates tragedy to the heights of catharsis.
