Hailed by the Sunday Telegraph as 'the most beautiful show of the year in operatic London' and later staged by the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the late Anthony Minghella's Olivier Award-winning take on Puccini's culture-clash tragedy returns.
With its breathtaking mix of cinematic images and traditional Japanese theatre, its riot of colourful costumes, stunning sets and unforgettable use of puppetry, Minghella's only opera production brilliantly delivers what The Independent called 'the simplest and the most sumptuous thing we've ever seen in this theatre'.
Mary Plazas, who played the title-role in Minghella's original production, makes a triumphant return as the teenage geisha girl seduced by a Yankee sailor.
