Madama Butterfly Red Floral & Bird Jacket

A stand-out in our collection, this exquisite ruby red, long jacket features a large floral and bird pattern in deep green, fuchsia, purple, dark brown and lighter shades of neutral colors.

It has 21 ½” long, three-quarter length sleeves with slits, on-seam side pockets, 2 ½” wide lapels and an elegant, high stand-up collar. Side slits provide style and an easy fit.

The jacket measures 32 ½” long from the shoulder to the bottom of the hem and is 30 ½” long from the neckline to the bottom of the hem. Made of 52.8% nylon, 47.2% polyester. Lined in red.

Meant to be worn open, the tailored construction and generous size lend comfort to both formal and less fancy evening attire.

Reflective of the dramatic Japanese-inspired costumes created for the Met’s much-beloved production of Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.

History

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.
