Puccini is a connoisseur of the female soul. Most of his operas are portraits of women: Manon Lescaut, Tosca, La fanciulla del West, Turandot… Puccini’s favorite topic is “What is love between a Man and a Woman?”. The clash of Masculine and Feminine, the clash of Eastern and Western mentality are the core of Madama Butterfly. Puccini’s music reveals the feelings of the heroes subtly, passionately, unusually accurately following their state of mind. It breathes with poetry, romance and the fragrance of the “oriental” East.
