Our new production of Madam Butterfly opened in Cardiff on Friday 24 September, and we have been receiving fantastic audience feedback as well as 4 star reviews in the press. Here’s what some of our audience have said:
A fascinating production, which we enjoyed very much, and which provides much food for thought. The webinar sessions in the previous two weeks (we saw two of them) were very helpful preparation for this different approach to the story. Thankyou WNO!
Loved the production - fabulous and very thought provoking
Absolutely brilliant. Just got home and still on a high.
or via email:
‘I was so gripped, moved, entranced, uplifted and shattered, that I felt I had to write. What a fabulous Butterfly for our times. I am going to come again – several times, if I can.’
‘We absolutely loved this production. The opera covers such difficult and uncomfortable issues which were interpreted with brilliance, bravery, sensitivity and creativity. It was/is a triumph and having seen it I can’t imagine any other production coming anywhere near the bar you have set.’
‘I will be booking to see this again in March. Thank you for allaying my fears and proving that sometimes change is required.'
‘(I) was completely lifted into a wonderful world of passion, and magic. The voices and acting were brilliant, what a pairing of Butterfly and Suzuki, a perfect match, so much so that occasionally I got confused as to who was actually singing. The duets were excellent because of that’
