Giacomo Puccini’s Madame Butterfly counts today, in contrast to the premiere in Milan 1904, as one of Puccini’s most played operas and is seen as one of the best operas by opera connoisseur’s. The story puts the young in Nagasaki living Cio-Cio San, who fell in love with an American navy officer, in the focus. The American is pleased by the attention of the young Geisha, but unlike Cio-Cio San who dreams of the American Dream, he only sees her as an exotic affair. Puccini himself named Madame Butterfly his most sensitive opera.
