    Virginia Opera: Madama Butterfly Ticket Giveaway

    Enter by: March 11, 2024

    Virginia Opera’s season comes to a stunning close with one of opera’s most beloved works. Set in imperial Japan, Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly follows a young Japanese maiden after she is abandoned by a reckless American naval officer. Bound by tradition and honor, she fanatically believes her “husband” will return to her and they can be a family. Puccini’s haunting score—heavily influenced by Japanese folk melodies—is filled with unforgettable music of unparalleled beauty that will stay with you long after you’ve left the theater. 

    Each winner will receive two tickets to see Madama Butterfly at the Center for the Arts at George Mason University on Sunday, March 17, at 2 PM. Two winners will be drawn from qualifying entries.
