Affordable Madam Butterfly London opera tickets on sale now for the 2019/20 ENO Season!
Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning production has returned to the London Coliseum for its limited 2020 run. Madam Butterfly is one of the most frequently staged operas of our generation and never ceases to amaze opera fans, which is why tickets are bound to be in high demand for this critically acclaimed English National Opera production.
What is the Madam Butterfly opera about?
In Giacomo Puccini’s story of unrequited love, a young Japanese girl, Cio-Cio San, falls in love with American naval officer Pinkerton and the pair elope. Before the birth of their son, he returns to the US, were Cio-Cio San is left to wait until his return.
About the 2020 ENO production of Madam Butterfly
Minghella’s staging combines cinematic images and traditional Japanese theatre. Singing in the titular role for the first time in London is the acclaimed Natalya Romaniw, who recently played Mimi in last season’s La bohème. She is joined by tenors Dimitri Pittas and Adam Smith, who share the role of Pinkerton. Leading British baritone and Olivier Award-winning singer Roderick Williams takes on the role of Sharpless while mezzo Stephanie Windsor-Lewis returns as Suzuki.
ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins (Jack the Ripper: Women of Whitechapel, War Requiem, The Magic Flute) conducts this highly anticipated revival. The opera in three acts (originally two) features a libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.

I was unable to attend the opera as i cancelled my trip to the UK due to the corona virus and would like a refund.

Slow, nothing was happening, expected something that suits 21st century so it is more entertaining. Everyone around me was having a nap

Really enjoyed the production

Vibrant colours; amazing 'choreography'. A visual feast! As always (for me) difficult to keep up with dialogue (apart from Roderick Williams whose enunciation is impeccable); our seats were the highest in the theatre and we knew we wouldn't be able to see the surtitles. It would be great to have local surtitle laser projection in the upper circle.

The production was fantastically done and the actors were superb - if you are into Puccini tragedies and opera, then this is well worth it

Our very first 'live' Opera. Don't get down to London very often these days, although I was born in South London, over 70 years ago. We've lived here in the East-Midlands...., Nottinghamshire for over fifty years. Well worth the trip. Stayed at St Martin's Lane Hotel (almost next door). Also dined at J Sheekeys, couple of hundred yards in opposite direction. Performance was absolutely wonderful. Liked the simplicity of the 'scenery', screens, cloudy/black scene shifters and mannequin operators. So clever that it took a while to work out that the 'boy's feet were operated by a third person..., and a 'girl' at that, only kidding. THANKS xx
