EVENT #: 30061
M. BUTTERFLY - The Tony Award Winner for Best Play written by David Henry Hwang, is all set to open on September 13 at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC Arts Center, Bonifacio Global City.
Presented by Tony and Grammy award winning producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment (producer of highly-acclaimed independent films Bhoy Intsik and Bwaya), M. BUTTERFLY will be directed by award-winning Kanakan-Balintagos.
This classic masterpiece drama, inspired by Giaccomo Puccini's opera “Madame Butterfly” is loosely based on events surrounding a 1986 espionage trial about a mysterious Chinese opera singer and a French diplomat.
René Gallimard is a member of the French embassy in China. René is mild mannered and considers himself to be poor with women. He meets and falls in love with Chinese opera star Song Liling, a woman whom he considers to be the embodiment of the perfect woman, Madame Butterfly.
But when West meets East… Everything is not what it seems….
