Hello please can you tell me the minimum age for Madame butterfly please ? My daughter is 13 and she wants to come with me to see this. Thank you :) Opera North response: Hi Tammy. Our production of Madama Butterfly doesn’t have any explicit content, though the piece itself features an upsetting ending. We would recommend that you read about the opera and our production to inform your decision with regard to suitability for your daughter. You can find details in our ‘Opera in a nutshell’ article

I have just seen Madam Butterfly at Grand Theatre in Leeds it was the best Opera I have been to in over Twenty Eight years. The performance by Anne Sophie Duprels was by far the best performance I have ever seen.
