Description
The delicate young geisha Cho-Cho-san—Madame Butterfly—weds the callow Lieutenant Pinkerton, not knowing that the marriage is merely a convenience for him while he stays in Japan. When his ship leaves, she remains devoted and, with their son, longs for his return. But Pinkerton comes back with a new wife, and wishes to take his son away. With a text adapted directly from Giacomo Puccini's 1905 opera—including Pinkerton's chauvinism and Cho-Cho-san's ritual suicide—this picture book is for readers 10 to adult. The illustrations are gorgeous, evocative of grand opera sets and Japanese woodblock prints, in earth colors with gold, red, and black accents.
