Giacomo Puccinis japanische Tragödie "Madame Butterfly" ist ein packendes Werk über das Aufeinanderprallen zweier Kulturen.

Nearly unimaginable – but the premiere of Giacomo Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" 1904 at the Scala of Milan was a true disaster. The vehement refusal of the audience and the press hit Puccini, spoiled by success, totally off-guard.

Nevertheless he believed in his new opera where the geisha Cio-Cio-San marries the American naval lieutenant Pinkerton, stationed in Japan. After a short time he leaves her again though. Until today Puccini's "most soulful, most expressive opera" is a gripping work about the clash of two cultures.
