About Madame Butterfly

***** ‘simply stunning’


Be swept away by one of Northern Ballet’s best loved productions as innocence love and betrayal unfold in the picturesque gardens of a Japanese house.

Butterfly is fragile, unworldly, and prepared to sacrifice everything for the love of the handsome American, Lieutenant Pinkerton. He deserts her only to return years later with his new wife. Abandoned and betrayed Butterfly is left with only one honourable course of action.

‘dance really is the perfect medium to express the tragedy of Madame Butterfly...a triumph of artistry worth a visit by anyone’
