Heartbreaking operatic tale

PUCCINI’S Madama Butterfly is to be performed for one night only at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Wednesday, November 16, from 7.30pm.

With handpicked soloists, a highly-praised chorus and full orchestra, this opera tells the heartbreaking story of a beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant with dramatic results.

Exquisite sets, fabulous costumes and highlights including the melodic Humming Chorus, the moving aria One Fine Day and the unforgettable Love Duet.

The opera is to be sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Tickets are £20-£32 (with concessions) and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
