Puccini's three-act opera tells the story of Cio-Cio-San, "Butterfly," and her estranged American husband, Pinkerton. The audience awaits Pinkerton’s return to Japan alongside Butterfly and their young son. The heartbreaking piece is conducted by Grant Gershon.

American tenor Brandon Jovanovich plays Pinkerton. Milena Kitic, a Serbian mezzo-soprano, also stars as Butterfly’s maid, Suzuki.
