«Un bel dì, vedremo» (One fine day, we shall see) Madama Butterfly (the famous “Japanese tragedy” by Giacomo Puccini) come back to the Arena, in the suggestive set-up by Franco Zeffirelli, embellished by Oscar-winner Emi Wada’s costumes. Or rather, we will admire it on four nights, from 12 August to 7 September.

Get your kimono... and your tissues ready, as very few stories are as heartbreaking as Cio-Cio-San’s, the fifteen-year-old geisha who (wishing to redeem herself from a life of misery), accepts a sham marriage to Lieutenant Pinkerton, falls in love with him (while he only sees her as a diversion), and would give up anything to stay true to her commitment.
