Event Details

The Royal Opera’s production of Puccini’s deeply poignant opera ‘Madama Butterfly’ will be broadcast live to the Eden Cinemas’ screens exclusively on the 30th March at 8.15pm. Antonio Pappano conducts an impressive cast led by Ermonela Jaho in one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. 

Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

This operatic masterpiece is available to watch at a fraction of the overseas prices. Be part of the global audience by viewing the Royal Opera House live broadcast for one night only. Tickets for the live broadcast are available for €18 for adults and €10 for children and under 16. This includes a complimentary glass of wine and complimentary parking at the Eden Leisure Car park. If you’re unable to attend the live show, an encore screening will be held on Sunday 2nd April at 3pm. Tickets for this are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for children, including free parking. 

The event is sponsored by Attard and Co, 35 South, Encore magazine, The Malta Arts Council and Waterbiscuit. 

Tickets may be purchased from the Eden Cinemas box office or online atwww.edencinemas.com.mt.
