Madama Butterfly Poster

Leopoldo Metlicovitz's art-nouveau poster for the 1904 world premiere of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly beautifully captures the opera’s exotic Japanese setting. The artist’s initials can be seen in the lower left-hand corner of the window.

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.
