Love changes all, not always for the better. Cio-Cio San's open heart and trusting nature are the reasons that Pinkerton should love her, and the reasons that we weep at the end of the opera. We're introduced to the lopsided love between a young Japanese woman and Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton, a U.S. Naval officer. "Butterfly" gives up her family and her religion to be with Pinkerton. Pinkerton gives up nothing, and promptly leaves for nearly three years. He eventually returns, with his American wife, and the young Butterfly is mortally devastated.

Sung in Italian with English texts projected above the stage.

Estimated run time is 2 hours, 45 minutes, with 1 intermission.
