A contemporary approach to the classic, heartbreaking tale of a woman abandoned by the man she loves. An all-women creative team brings a fresh vision to Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, in a modern, tradition-breaking interpretation of this beloved work.
This is a first-time collaboration with the OSU Dance Department and features the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.
Each performance of Madama Butterfly will include ASL Interpretation, provided by Stagehands Performing Arts Interpreting.
