One of the most famous Opera in the world: Madama Butterfly, by Puccini.
Madama Butterfly tells a tragedy, a terrible story, that of a broken love, of waiting and of abandonment.
Alas the beautiful one was a geisha – and for foreigners it meant: prostitute – luxury, but still. You marry a geisha for 999 years, as you rent for 999 years – and you give up geisha as a rental after a month – that’s the supposed Japanese’ rule.
But geisha means: artist. A person who practices the arts.
The ugly misunderstanding that abandons the beautiful Japanese geisha.
She was 15 years old.
She had been raised with respect for the arts, honour and love.
She had a son from her union.
And when she was 18, she realized that she had lost her husband and her honour.
Since she didn’t know how to live with honor, then she will die in honor.
Honour to Italy, its creator and its mythical venues: take a look at Scala with the video below… it’s better to be there in person.
But my God, it’s a way to be there a little bit.
It is currently being given at the MET – and why can’t I go to New York?
Take a look at this presentation :
Everything is a hundred thousand times more powerful at the Opera House.
Hearing the so powerful voices of the artists a few centimetres away gives you goose bumps
Admire the orchestra and the perfect balance between musicians and singers
Remain stunned by the scenography
The play of artists, who play their characters like theatre actors
Feel the energy of the music and a whole room that quivers, yes it’s beautiful.
It would be a pity not to listen to Callas’ sublime voice when we talk about Madama Butterfly, isn’t it?
So if one day we introduce Madame Butterfly, we will not forget to tell you about Japan, its artists, its history, its painters and poets, as well as its contemporary artists – who make the French dream, the mangaka.
And we will certainly not forget Italy, Scala, the Opera and the Italian Theatre, which make the whole world dream.
As we will be in love and refinement, we will not be able to forget to invite the Wang Ramirez Dance Company
