Mme Butterfly – The One Man Opera

- June 6, 2014

This play-with-music follows on from the Puccini opera and tells the story of the bi-racial son, product of the ill-fated romance, who seeks his father in ’30s America. The one man in front of our eyes, and also the brains behind this work of genius, is Ignacio Jarquin. His fantastic ability to hold our attention with a meticulously crafted performance is enhanced by clever use of props, and expert lighting effects from Martin Chick. Jarquin is particularly moving when radiating hope of a new life in America, like so many immigrants through the years; a brilliant, resonant work of theatre.
