The genesis of Butterfly really shows Puccini's intellectual curiosity. He was in London in the summer of 1900 for a performance of Tosca, he attended a play adapted from the Pierre Loti’s Madame Crystantheme and he was immediately taken with it. Soon after, he followed meticulously the outline of the libretto by Illica and Giacosa while at the same time gathering ethnic material on Japan thanks to the wife of the Japanese ambassador in Italy. Apart from its premiere at La Scala in Milan which was an anticipated fiasco, the opera has enjoyed a steady series of triumphs to this day. It is a story of pure and betrayed love, of death and anticipation. In Butterfly music is the absolute protagonist, it elicits total emotional participation using the orchestra and the signing to create masks that come alive with oriental colours. Ferzan Özpetek is the director of this recent and critically acclaimed production of Teatro San Carlo. He has set the narrative in the years following the nuclear disaster of Nakasaki, keeping however great respect towards Puccini's original storyline. He only takes the liberty to insert a film fragment during the humming chorus, as a recognizable signature, which also appears in his Traviata.
