Outdoor Opera Screening: Madama Butterfly at Chatsworth

In the open-air setting of the garden, discover Puccini's devastating tragedy about a young geisha who falls in love with an American naval officer, screened live from London's Royal Opera House.


11th May 2024 6:30 pm - 10:15 pm

With the house and garden as your backdrop, discover Puccini’s devastating tragedy Madama Butterfly, screened live from London's Royal Opera House.

When young Japanese geisha Cio-Cio-San marries American naval officer Pinkerton, she believes she is entering a marriage for life. Forsaking her religion and community, she dreams of a future with her new husband, only to learn that for Pinkerton, their marriage is merely an illusion — one with tragic consequences.

With its exquisite score, Giacomo Puccini’s poignant 1904 opera is as beautiful as it is shattering.

  • Parental guidance advised
  • The performance lasts about 2 hours 45 minutes, including one interval


The garden is accessible however, the screening is on the lawn which is sloping in places and can be quite slippery. The picnic area, on Salisbury lawn in front of the rose garden, is flat.
