Madama Butterfly
The title character of Madama Butterfly—a 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. The lyric beauty of Puccini’s score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterfly timeless. World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1904. Met premiere: February 11, 1907.

Composer
Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924)

Setting
The opera takes place in the Japanese port city of Nagasaki at the turn of the last century, at a time of expanding American international presence.

Met History
In 1907, Giacomo Puccini came to the United States for the first time for the Met premiere of Madama Butterfly. Geraldine Farrar sang the title role, and her 139 appearances in this opera remain a Met record.
