Madama Butterfly takes flight at Lyric Opera of Kansas City

HE LOVES HER…NOT.

Young love falls for an old lie, and so begins the what may be the greatest argument against long-distance relationships ever made. Puccini pours melodic perfection (and keeps ’em coming) as “the happiest girl in Japan” eagerly marries a swaggering, shallow U.S. Navy man who embodies the phrase “love is fleeting.”

Wrapped in rapturous musical beauty that will bring you to tears is a heartbreaking ending that will bring you to your knees. We can only watch as Butterfly floats toward her fate, like a moth to a flame, like a lamb to the slaughter. Til death do them part.

Lyric Opera brings this dazzling production to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts November 3 Р11, 2018 (evening performances start at 7:30 PM; Sunday matinee is at 2:00 PM).
