Madam Butterflop

18:30-19:10, Wednesday 24th July 2019

 

Music: Puccini, arr. Timothy Burke

Words: Giacosa and D’Illica, arr. Bill Bankes-Jones

 

Some call it tragic, others devastating, we know it will be both.

 

Tête à Tête once again revisits a favourite from the canon of great operas. Following the previous disasters of Bohememergency and Toscatastrophe! this time Tete a Tete’s own love of these classic works is turned to Puccini’s exploration of the unrequited kind.

 

Directed (loosely speaking)  by Bill Bankes-Jones to an orchestration (of sorts) from Timothy Burke, Madame Butterfly and her loyal servant Suzuki will be up against it in every possible way.

 

If you want lavish costumes, a sea of chorus and an unbelievable visual spectacle then this isn’t for you, well apart from the latter.  You will laugh, cry and likely be a little bemused.  But your heart will sing.
