Madama Butterfly at the Odessa Opera Theatre for the anniversary of Giacomo Puccini

On December 22, the Odessa Opera Theatre will host an international partnership with the world opera communities.

On December 22, at 5 pm, the opera “Madama Butterfly” will be staged, dedicated to the memory of Giacomo Puccini, because on that day the composer’s birthday (164 years) occurs. The show is also dedicated to the world legend of opera Solomia Krushelnitskaya: “the most beautiful and charming Butterfly”, as the Maestro Puccini used to say. The Ukrainian soprano’s 150th anniversary is celebrated in 2022.
