Elliott!! I'm surprised that you would make this comparison (i.e., the Humming Chorus from "Butterfly" with "Bring Him Home" from "Les Miserables")! The Puccini, even after your mentioning the comparison (based on the rising phrase with which the chorus opens, I guess), makes me think only of the situation in the opera, and the sadness that this scene has always evoked for me ever since I first heard it when I was a kid. The overdone bathos of the Broadway show doesn't compare.
