Reading of Velina Hasu Houston's "Madame Butterfly"

Selected date

Saturday October 19

Selected time

5:00 PM  –  6:30 PM

What is the “real” story of Madame Butterfly? In John Luther Long’s 1898 short story, Madame Butterfly, the demise of the fictional lead character is quite a bit different than depicted in the famed story in Giacomo Puccini’s similarly named opera or the reincarnation of that female essence in Cameron Mackintosh’s Miss Saigon musical theatre play.

In a new play and film, Velina Hasu Houston explores the archetype myth in Madame Butterfly: The Original, adapted from the Long story.
