VIVACE Night at Madame Butterfly

VIVACE, Opera Philadelphia's community for young friends, invites you to experience Puccini's masterpiece.

Is it true love or just a fantasy? The achingly beautiful score and heartbreaking story at the core of Madame Butterfly explode in a new production by designer Yuki Izumihara and director Ethan Heard that transcends stereotypes, empowering the young geisha Cio Cio San with new agency over her journey.


Following the performance, meet the cast and mingle with the VIVACE community during a special reception. Complimentary light bites with a cash bar included.
