Blue Calico Butterfly Brooch

Butterflies are a symbol of tranformation and hope, and therefore a fitting name for Cio-Cio-San, the title character of Madama Butterfly. The story of the young Japanese geisha who clings to the belief that her arrangement with a visiting American naval officer is a loving and permanent marriage is one of the defining roles in opera.

This beautiful blue butterfly brooch is handmade in a fair trade artisinal workshop, its blue color reminiscent of the striking colors in the Met’s production of Madama Butterfly.
As each pin is individually hand-crafted, small variations in size, shape and color may occur.

  • Multi-color
  • Cotton, felt, metal, sequins & beads
  • 3.1” W x 2” H
  • Handmade in India

Puccini’s original version of Madama Butterfly premiered at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala in 1904. The composer was inspired to write an opera about a tragic love between a young Japanese geisha and an American Navy officer after seeing David Belasco’s play by the same name performed in London in June 1900. Puccini’s score includes many Japanese folk melodies, and is one of his most sweeping and sophisticated. It remains one of the world’s most popular operas.
