The title character of Madama Butterfly is one of the defining roles in opera. Cio-Cio-san, a young geisha, clings to the belief that her marriage to an American naval officer is a loving and permanent one. The story, based on a literary work, sparks ideas about cultural and racial bias. The lyric beauty of Puccinis score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterflytimeless.
