These magnificent wing-shaped red glass earrings were curated especially for The Met Opera’s production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly and fabricated using the poured glass technique. Poured glass jewelry, also known as pâte de verre, was created in France in the late 1800s and has been used by almost all the great fashion houses. It takes many hours to create just one piece, but the result is truly elegant.

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.
