“Madama Butterfly” is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini on a libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. This 2013 production of Teatro La Fenice was conceived in collaboration with the Venice Biennale.
Sets and costumes are designed by the Internationally acclaimed artist Mariko Mori, author of installations inspired by the intersection between the ancient Japanese cultural tradition and the most sophisticated contemporary technological tools. The set is an empty white space featuring, over the three acts, different sculptural elements produced by the artist.
The director of the show is the Spanish director Àlex Rigola, director for many years of the innovative Teatre Lliure of Barcelona and since 2010 of the Theater section of the Venice Biennale. Conductor is Daniele Callegari.
