Opera: Madama Butterfly

Award-winning opera producer Ellen Kent returns to Ipswich’s Regent Theatre for another stunning shows.

Full of passion, romance and tragedy, don’t miss the opportunity to see this traditional art form. Whether you are an opera aficionado or have never been to one before, this is an unmissable experience. 

The tragic opera Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s most popular operas and the hit West End musical Miss Saigon is based on Puccini’s tragic tale.
