Over a century after Madama Butterfly’s premiere in 1904, Riccardo Chailly restores Puccini’s original two act version to the La Scala stage

This is the first ever video release of the original two-act version of Madama Butterfly from 1904, making this a truly unique release

Drawing inspiration from Japanese Kabuki theatre this magical new production features an international star cast “This was a performance endowed with abundant detail, an impressive depth of sound and a suppleness in lyrical

passages that was nowhere more luxuriant than in the glittering evocation of a Nagasaki dawn.” Financial Times
