Lieutenant Pinkerton, an officer of the United States Navy, arrives at Nagasaki in the course of his duties. It is here that he meets Cho-Cho-San, known as Madam Butterfly.
Goro is a Japanese marriage broker, to whom Pinkerton goes ro draw up an agreement concerning his forthcoming marriage to Butterfly, for whom he has a passing infatuation. Goro assures him that the marriage is only binding so long as he continues to live with his wife.
In the meantime Madam Butterfly has forsaken her gods to become Christian and is scorned by her relations, who finally renounce her.
To Pinkerton comes Sharpless, the American Consul at Nagasaki, who tries to dissuade him from this marriage, and points out that Butterfly is very serious and is under the impression that she is entering a life contract-hut Pinkerton does not listen to him. The marriage takes place and is followed by a feast, where her uncle, the Bonze, finally curses her. - The Act ends with mutual protestations of love.

Act 2, Inside Butterfly's House
In Act 2 we find Butterfly and her child alone - Pinkerton having been called home on duty. Three years have passed by since he sailed, but she still trusts him implicitly and with her son, 'Little Trouble' awaits his return.
In the meantime Pinkerton has married an American girl. He receives an order from the United States Navy to return to Japan, and with him he takes his wife, Kate. He writes to Sharpless, asking him to break the news to Butterfly.
Sharpless gives the letter to Butterfly, but she is so overjoyed that she does not trouble to open it but bids her maid, Suzuki, gather flowers to decorate the villa for her loved one's welcome home. She stays up all the night, but falls asleep in the morning from sheer fatigue.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
