The highly acclaimed Russian State Operareturns to Tyne Theatre & Opera House with the perfect tragic opera, Madam Butterfly, featuring remarkable talent, 6 year old Isaac Hutchinson.
The local star who has a passion for dancing, singing and all things theatre was lucky enough to be chosen to portray the son of Madam Butterfly in this impressive cast accompanied by a large live orchestra of over 30 musicians.
As an attendee of Ponteland First School and Stagecoach at Gosforth Academy, Isaac has enjoyed performing in a number of shows, but is thrilled to be part of the internationally acclaimed opera production, an experience he is sure to remember for a very long time.
Set in Japan at the turn of the century, Madam Butterfly is among the most colourful and exotic of all operas, and from its theme of noble self-sacrifice spring melodies that grip your heart.
It tells the story of a doomed love affair between an American naval officer and his young Japanese bride, whose defiance of her family leads to heartbreak and tragedy.
This touching story of innocent love crushed amidst two utterly different cultures resonates as strongly as ever in today’s world.
