"Love cannot kill, it brings new life...."

On a star-lit night in Nagasaki, these are the words spoken by American naval officer Pinkerton, to young geisha Cio-Cio San. But as they both learn, words and promises, carelessly spoken can have indelible consequences.

With a score that includes Butterfly's aria, 'Un bel di, vedremo' (One fine day) and the 'Humming Chorus', Puccini's opera is entrancing and ultimately heart breaking. 

Cio-Cio San - Maria Agresta.  Pinkerton - Joshua Guerrero.

Moshe Leiser and and Patrice Caurier's exquisite production takes inspiration from 19th Century European images of Japan. 

Live performance at the Royal Opera House, recorded on Tuesday 27th Sept 2022.
