by Giacomo Puccini
A love affair goes horribly wrong in a fateful meeting of East and West. Set in 1890’s Japan, Puccini’s heartbreaking story of betrayal portrays an American naval officer as he marries a young Japanese girl only to abandon her and force her to make the ultimate sacrifice. A devastating saga of devotion, tradition, and sacrifice—and one of the most beloved operas of all time.
