PostHeaderIcon Live @ The Waterfront: Madama Butterfly from Sydney -- 18 September

Thursday 18 September -- Live @ The Waterfront: Madama Butterfly -- Screening at 7pm at the Waterfront Cinema, Customhouse Way, Greenock.

A spectacular modern retelling of Puccini’s heart-rending opera on a magnificent water stage suspended over Sydney Harbour, Australia. Puccini’s hugely popular and deeply moving tale of love, honour and betrayal tells of Japanese geisha Cio-Cio San’s doomed romance with American naval officer Pinkerton. Among the superb score’s many highlights are the famous Humming chorus, Cio-Cio San’s first entrance, her seduction by Pinkerton, and her wonderful aria ‘Un bel di vedremo’. This stunning modern staging is Handa Opera’s third production on Sydney Harbour, following the success of ‘Carmen’ and ‘La Traviata’. Once again, the breathtaking water stage is suspended above the harbour against the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and the world-famous Opera House. This time, a giant sun and moon, each 12 metres wide, rise from the water to hang above the stage. Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura portrays tragic Cio-Cio San, with Georgy Vasiliev performing the role of Pinkerton.

Tickets £13 (Concessions £10) | Waterfront Cinema
