Humming Chorus from Madame Butterfly Puccini Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Madame Butterfly is based on a play by Belasco, which in turn is based on a true story about a Japanes Geisha girl who is jilted by her sailor husband and tries to take her own life. However, in Puccini's opera, Butterfly does commit suicide at the end. Lt Pinkerton of the US navy marries Cio Cio san (Madame Butterfly) during a shore leave. After a honeymoon, his ship leaves, and Pinkerton does not know that his bride is pregnant. Three years later, Pinkerton's ship does return, so Cio Cio and her infant son keenly await him to arrive at their blossom-decorated house, whilst a 'humming chorus' sings in the garden. She learns that he has re-married in the USA, and he fails to return to her.
