"'Madame Butterfly' was Salt Marsh Opera's first ever opera production and we're thrilled to bring it back to southeast connecticut to celebrate our 15th Anniversary," said Salt March Artistic Director Simon Holt, who described the opera.

The story takes place in Nagasaki, Japan, he said. Young Cio-Cio San, known as Butterfly, adores her husband-to-be, U.S. Naval Officer B.F. Pinkerton. Though their wedding night is filled with tender bliss, Butterfly has no idea Pinkerton wants to marry 'a real American bride' when he returns to the states. Poor Butterfly subsists on the departed Pinkerton's vows for three lonely years, longing for his return," he said. "But when the day arrives, Butterfly's dreams are ... well, you just have to come and find out!"
