M. Butterfly

Renowned British actor Clive Owen stars in the Tony-winning drama M. Butterfly, inspired by the Puccini opera Madama Butterfly. The director is Julie Taymor (The Lion King).

Owen plays the role of a French diplomat in China who carries on a 20-year affair with a mysterious Chinese opera singer, an affair that involves international espionage, personal betrayal and deceit. Playwright David Henry Hwang will introduce new material inspired by the real love affair between French diplomat Bernard Boursicot and Chinese opera singer Shi Pei Pu that has emerged since the play first opened in 1988.
