Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini. A Citywide Arts Collaboration Grand Opera production featuring Central Coast Children's Choir, Civic Ballet San Luis Obispo, Deyo Dances, Opera San Luis Obispo, and Studio @-Ryan's American Dance.

One of the most famous operas of all time, this October 14 and 15 Japan's red sun rises in San Luis Obispo with OperaSLO's production of Giacomo Puccini’s operatic masterpiece, Madama Butterfly! This exotic, lush, romantic, intense, and tragic love story is lavishly set in the early 20th century, to the backdrop of America's Imperialistic courtship of Japan, during its early transition to colonialism. While on shore leave in Nagasaki harbor, American Lieutenant Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton falls in love and marries the young and impressionable Cio-Cio San (aka Madama Butterfly). Soon thereafter Pinkerton's ship sails and Butterfly waits patiently for her husband to come home.

Our Citywide Arts Collaboration continues in this expansive new grand opera production featuring full orchestra, mixed choruses, ballet, soaring arias, period sets and costumes, and an internationally acclaimed cast of opera singers.

Opera synopsis, artist bio's and other concert information available online at www.operaslo.org. Pre-opera lecture by John Frey in Philips Hall one hour before curtain.

Opera San Luis Obispo is a professional Grand-Opera producing company celebrating 31-years of continuous service on California's beautiful Central Coast. Learn more about our exciting productions below:
