Cast’s feedback

~Beautiful pictures! They are reflecting all beautiful moments spent here in HK! Today we will have two awesome performances for HK audience! They deserve it! Thanks Warren to have made this possible, the choice to make 2 performance today is a strong signal in response to yesterday dramatic episode. This is impressive. In other theater we wouldn’t had a similar situation. They would have simply cancelled the show and goodbye to everyone. OHK is lucky to be guided by strong people like you. I am honoured to be (a small) part of all of this.

Regarded as Puccini’s most melodious opera, Madama Butterfly is a perfect amalgam of eastern culture and traditional western opera. Opera Hong Kong joins forces with Slovene National Theatre Maribor to present this magnificent production of the heart-wrenching love story. Performed by the most sought-after singers from Asia and Europe in a traditional setting, the production will turn the entire stage into Butterfly’s house in Nagasaki with scenes created by spectacular modern visual effect.
