Tony award winning play M.Butterfly returns to Broadway featuring Tony Award winners David Henry Hwang and Julie Taymor alongside Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen.
Why See the Show
M.Butterfly is a modern classic with several awards and critical acclamations under its belt. The show even inspired a movie titled ‘Madame Butterfly’ which did not receive the same popularity as the Broadway classic. A story themed around international espionage, betrayal, love and inspired by real life events, this show is a stunning representation of Broadway and it's magic.
Both an intimate love story and an epic tale of political intrigue, this new sweeping staging will blend original music and song by Academy Award-winner Elliot Goldenthal with elaborate martial arts-inspired choreography by Ma Cong.
Follow the story of a married French diplomat and a Chinese Opera singer as they indulge in scandalous romance, deceit, and betrayal. Inspired by the real-life love affair between French diplomat Bernard Boursicot and the Chinese opera singer Shi Pei Pu, the story blurs the lines between the East and the West, using themes of love and espionage.
