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 to 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 filially denounce 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—but Pinkerton does not listen to him. The marriage takes place, and is followed by .a feast, wherelier uncle, The Bonze, finally curses her. The Act ends with mutual protestations of love.
