Arguably one of the most famous (and heart-wrenching) operas of all time, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly will be brought to life at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre on Friday, April 5 at 8pm and Sunday, April 7 at 2pm.

This Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s staged production tells the story of a beautiful young geisha as she sacrifices her family, her religion, and ultimately her life for an American naval officer, who takes her as his bride for convenience, with no intention of bringing her home to America. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Tickets range from $22 to $82, but you could win 2 tickets here.
