Tony-winner Michael Grandage (Broadway's Red, Evita) brought his keen theatrical eye to this new-to-Chicago production of Puccini's tragic masterpiece, starring Patricia Racette as Cio-Cio-San and Stefano Secco as Pinkerton. Madama Butterfly focuses on a Japanese geisha, who rejects her family and religion to marry an American naval officer. But the devoted wife then discovers that their union was only meant to pass the time on his tour of duty in Nagasaki, leading to a heartbreaking conclusion. Featuring one of the best-known arias in all of opera, "Un bel di," this Lyric Opera staging is performed in Italian with projected English texts. Learn More

Opening Night (Oct. 5): The Opening Night Gala is a chance to mix and mingle with fellow music lovers in the glorious Civic Opera House. Thrill to the inspiring energy of a new season while sipping champagne and enjoying delectable sweets and savories. The reception takes place in the opulent Rice Grand Foyer and throughout all lobbies before the performance and during intermission. This is a black tie event and formal attire is requested.
* Running time for this show is approximately 3 hours.
