No. 3—' Madam Butterfly'
Presented by Anna Instone
Madam Butterfly is one of the most popular operas all the world over and is full of lovely melodies. The action takes place in Japan, near Nagasaki, where a ship of the United States Navy is stationed. Pinkerton, in command of the ship, falls in love with a Japanese girl, known as Butterfly, and against the wishes of his friends and the curse of Butterfly's relatives he goes through a form of marriage with her.
Shortly afterwards Pinkerton has to return to America and is away for three years, during which time he has married an American. According to Japanese law, an absence of even one month constitutes a divorce, but Butterfly firmly believes that Pinkerton will come back to her. When his ship returns Butterfly sits up all night to watch for him, but when Pinkerton hears of Butterfly's devotion he cannot face her and sends his wife to offer to adopt their child. Butterfly at last realises the truth and kills herself with her father's sword.
