What is the “real” story of Madame Butterfly? In John Luther Long’s 1898 short story, Madame Butterfly, the demise of the fictional lead character is quite a bit different than depicted in the famed story in Giacomo Puccini’s similarly named opera or the reincarnation of that female essence in Cameron Mackintosh’s Miss Saigon musical theatre play.

In a new play and film, Velina Hasu Houston explores the archetype myth in Madame Butterfly: The Original, adapted from the Long story.

This program is free, but RSVPs are recommended using the link below.
