Opera Australia's Madama Butterfly on Sydney Harbour (PG)

Afternoon Arts

Madama Butterfly

One of the world’s most spectacular events, Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour, returns to our cinema with a modern retelling of Puccini’s tale of love and honour, Madama Butterfly.

For the third consecutive year an opera has been 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.
