Ms Butterfly


Ms Butterfly

with the Denver International Festival of Arts & Technology

July 25 – 28, 2019

Ms. Butterfly will be the opening production at the Denver International Festival of Arts & Technology 2019 in July, presented by the Joseph & Loretta Law Institute of Arts and Technology at the University of Denver. It will feature dancers from Wonderbound and dance sequences choreographed by Artistic Director Garrett Ammon.

Ms. Butterfly is a dynamic, futuristic electro-acoustic adaptation of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly in which, about fifty years from now, an American young heiress will be similarly betrayed by a Chinese naval captain and will share the ultimate tragic fate.

This unique adaptation using modern digital advances in music and art direction allows a beloved classic to be appreciated by a contemporary audience. Ms. Butterfly’s multi-cultural cast and its East meets West production personnel give this production life in an unprecedented manner. The audience can feel that this emotional tale of love, betrayal, jealousy and sacrifice is not bound by race, national boundaries and history.
