Choreography: Stanton Welch AM | Music: Giacomo Puccini, arranged by John Lanchbery
Stanton Welch’s internationally acclaimed Madame Butterfly reemerges to captivate audiences once more. With a magnificent score by Puccini, in an arrangement by John Lanchbery, Madame Butterfly tells the love story of a beautiful Geisha and a handsome American. Since its premiere, Madame Butterfly has become Welch’s international signature piece, having entered the repertoires of Houston Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, Royal New Zealand Ballet, Singapore Dance Theatre, Boston Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Ballet West and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.
MADAME BUTTERFLY IS PURE THEATRICS, AND IS TRADITIONALLY ENJOYED AS SUCH. THE COMPANY ACQUITS ITSELF BEAUTIFULLY, AND THE MUSIC, UNDER THE DIRECTION OF ERMANNO FLORIO, IS PERFECTION. TO BE HONEST, I AM MORE THAN SATISFIED.”
