Enjoy an Exclusive 20% Discount on Opera Tickets for Madama Butterfly

By Promotions 30 November 2018
Forget about Santa, and instead immerse yourself in the world of mellifluous music and singing, as Madama Butterfly is coming to town! After months in the making, Musica Viva is presenting a new production of the Puccini classic as a celebration of its 10th anniversary. And with Christmas just around the corner, Musica Viva is offering a 20% discount to Localiiz readers as an early present to spread love and romance in Hong Kong.    Staged at the Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall from December 7 to 9, the production stars two sensational Korean sopranos and two American tenors who lead the story, which is set in the helplessly romantic and dramatic world of Nagasaki, Japan in 1900. Produced and directed by much-loved professor, Lo Kingman, and conducted by award-winning maestro, Lio Kuokman, this is an opera that cannot be missed. To enjoy a 20% discount off your ticket, simply use the code MV20 when booking online at URBTIX. And to find out more about the production, visit the new Musica Viva website. Don't forget to subscribe to other exclusive discounts and invitations from Musica Viva, too. About Madama Butterfly An Asian heroine from Japan, Madama Butterfly, shows her total commitment to an American lieutenant, Pinkerton. During the wedding, drama arises as her uncle and her family turn against Butterfly. Against all odds, the newly wedded couple take us to the end of the first act with the Vogliatemi bene, one of the greatest love duets in operas. Pinkerton calms Butterfly's quivering heart with a vow of his love… Three years has passed. When Madama Butterfly's son and servant fall asleep, the melancholic and calm humming chorus (Coro a bocca chiusa) accompanies Butterfly to stay up all night, waiting for Pinkerton's return.

Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
