Item description for Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini, Renata Fucikova & J. Alison James...
Overview Details the tragic story of Cho-Cho-San, a Japanese geisha, who, after marrying an American Navy Lieutenant, is destroyed by her husband's betrayal when he returns, after leaving her for three years, with his new American wife.
Puccini's Madame Butterfly is the heartbreaking story of Cho-Cho-San, a beautiful, fragile Japanese Geisha, whose trust and fidelity are betrayed by her husband, an American Navy Lieutenant. Stationed in Nagasaki, Lieutenant Pinkerton acquires his wife as casually as his house — both leased for 99 years, with the option to cancel at any time. After their honeymoon, Pinkerton departs, promising to return. But for three long years, Cho-Cho-San awaits, and when he finally does return, he brings his new American wife — and finds he has a son by Cho-Cho-San. This picture book adaptation of the tragic libretto features haunting paintings that evoke the opera's exotic setting and emotional resonance, creating a captivating, cultured introduction for young readers.
