Now in its 63rd season, Shreveport Opera delights theatergoers with classic operas rendered in sumptuous visual and euphonic hues. As one of theater history’s most highly praised and produced pieces, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly continually entrances worldwide audiences with its tragic tale of the dark side of devotion. Set in Nagasaki in the dawn of the 1900s, Madama Butterfly’s journey begins when pious U.S. Naval officer Pinkerton seduces an innocent Japanese girl named Butterfly, marries her out of convenience, and then abandons her to fetch an American wife. When her estranged beau finally returns to Nagasaki with his new wife, an ending both brutal and heartbreaking unfolds. Although the opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage, Puccini’s powerhouse score of sweeping arias, romantic duets, and devastating choruses packs an emotional wallop that defies translation.

Though Shreveport Opera offers discounts for student tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
