Bursting with exotic colour and memorable melodies, Puccini’s seductive score conceals a dramatic blade that cuts to the heart. Blending authentic Japanese music with luscious European harmonies and orchestration, the opera is an irresistible fusion of East and West.
Praised by critics as a ‘thoughtful, provocative staging’ and a ‘scathing study of exploitation’, Annilese Miskimmon’s production updates the action to the 1950s. This post-war setting brings to the fore the darker elements of Puccini’s story. Little wonder that this opera has inspired numerous contemporary adaptations and reimaginings, including the hit musical Miss Saigon.

The emotional impact of the piece is devastating  ★★★★  Stage

Composed by Giacomo Puccini, sung in Italian with English subtitles. 

Broadcast live from Glyndebourne, with Conductor Omer Meir Wellber, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and The Glyndebourne Chorus.
