Madame Butterfly alights at the Potato Shed

Madame Butterfly by Melbourne City Ballet heads to the Potato Shed 8pm Friday 17 August.

Tickets are available at the Potato Shed, or by calling 5251 1998, or at any City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre.

Butterfly follows a young Japanese girl called Cho-Cho (nicknamed “Butterfly) as she marries US Naval Officer Pinkerton only to have him depart for the Americas. As the years pass Butterfly awaits his return with hope, refusing any new suitor but her Pinkerton. It is only upon Pinkerton’s return that Butterfly realises their union was not as she thought, ending in one of opera’s most infamous tragedies.

Redeveloped into a newly choreographed three-act ballet, Melbourne City Ballet’s production will capture the story’s essence through the fusion of traditional Japanese and classical ballet movement.

Tickets can be booked at any of our Customer Service Centres or purchased over the phone by credit card.
