Madama Butterfly, the story of a faithful geisha and a reckless American naval officer (said to be based on real events that occurred in Nagasaki in the early 1890s), is the most performed opera in the United States. Colorado State University Opera, Opera Fort Collins, and the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra will collaborate on the production with performances on May 20 and 22.
The story of a faithful geisha and a reckless American naval officer takes a tragic turn when their Eastern and Western worlds collide.
The opera will be performed in Italian with English subtitles.
