The most famous woman in opera history, and an incredible challenge as regards singing and acting skills as the singer in the role of Butterfly must face a whole range of extreme emotions and keep singing for almost 90 minutes without leaving the stage.

The dramatic story of the relationship between a geisha and an American Navy officer is set in the vibrant with life present-day Tokyo. The show in Szczecin, which refers to the poetics of films by Lars von Trier, has an extra in the shape of a dancer – Butterfly’s alter ego, and multimedia projections.
