Puccini: Madama Butterfly (2DVD)

Over a century after Madama Butterfly’s premiere in 1904, Riccardo Chailly restores Puccini’s original two act version to the La Scala stage.

This is the first-ever video release of the original two-act version of Madama Butterfly from 1904, making this a truly unique release.

Drawing inspiration from Japanese Kabuki theatre this magical new production features an international star cast “This was a performance endowed with abundant detail, an impressive depth of sound and a suppleness in lyrical passages that was nowhere more luxuriant than in the glittering evocation of a Nagasaki dawn.” - Financial Times
