Madama Butterfly On Sydney Harbour - Opera Australia


Contains suicide scene

About this Film

One of the world's most spectacular events, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, is returning to cinema screens in September 2014 with a modern retelling of Puccini's tale of love and honour, Madama Butterfly.

This year is the third opera to be staged on the magnificent water stage, suspended over the harbour against a backdrop of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. This outdoor spectacle includes a giant sun and moon - both 12 metres wide - which will rise from the water to hang above the stage where Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura will portray tragic Cio-Cio San with her co-star Georgy Vasiliev who performs the role of Pinkerton.

Past Handa productions include La Traviata, featuring a giant chandelier floating above the stage, along with last year's Carmen with spectacular costumes and staging confirming Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour gets bigger and better every year! Yes, there are fireworks, of course!

Approx. 2 hrs 20 mins including one 15 minute interval. Performed in Italian with subtitles.
