Over a hundred years after its premiere, Puccini's Madame Butterfly remains a
favourite in the operatic repertoire, a true work of genius that is
transcendently moving in its expression of love, loss, hope and despair.
Centering on a production for the Puccini Festival staged in Puccini's home town
of Torre del Lago in Tuscany, this documentary provides a superb introduction to
Puccini's masterpiece whilst also illustrating his consummate skill as a
composer for the operatic stage.
Directed by Vivien Hewitt, conducted by Keri-Lynn Wilson and starring the Chinese soprano Hui He, wiht Stefano Secco as Pinkerton and Antonio Salvadori as Sharpless, 'Madame Butterfly - The Trace of the Butterfly' is an informative and insightful exploration of the opera's themes and musical expression, which is wonderfully brought to life with substantial performance extracts.
