The Krakow Opera is staging one of the most beautiful love stories – a touching tale about the disappointing love between a geisha, Cio-Cio-San, and an American navy lieutenant. Madame Butterfly, as called by Pinkerton, is just a form of escape for the American, she is nothing more than just a mean to make a long journey more enjoyable, a passing fancy. Oriental Japan is a perfect background for the drama of Cio-Cio-San, who is left alone with a child by her lover.
