Soprano Anna Moffo gives a stunning performance in the role of Cio-Cio San in this 1956 black and white production of Puccini’s opera Madama Butterfly, giving opera lovers a great opportunity to witness a blossoming performer in a remarkable production of a classic opera.

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.
