The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists’ romanticised views of Japan. Puccini’s music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bridge.

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Sung in Italian with English Subtitles
