Giacomo Puccini

Madama Butterfly

Based on a libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica, Madama Butterfly is an opera in three acts that depicts the anxieties of the female soul. The protagonist of the drama Cio-Cio-san, despite being a victim of the marriage institution, grows in awareness throughout the opera up until the mature stage of motherhood, in the name of which she makes decisive choices. That of the protagonist is therefore a fragile and tormented figure, who finds in the most hidden regions of her soul the strength to break with conventions and to find freedom in abandoningher child and life.

COMPOSITORE

Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) can be considered as the last exponent of the great italian opera tradition; it imposes itself on the general public thanks to the intuition of the publisher Giulio Ricordi that sees in the composer from Lucca the genius in which to invest and enlisting two librettists Giuseppe Giacosa (1847-1906) and Luigi Illica (1857-1919). From this “dream team” opere such as La bohème, Toscaand Madama Butterfly areborn, works that consecrate Puccini as the only heir to Verdi and that still today make millions of people rush to theaters all over the world.
