Japanese culture gained great popularity in European art circles in the second half of the 19th century. Its many seemingly mystical traditions, its unusual social arrangement for the European perspective, have moved the imaginations of both writers and composers. During his stay in London in 1900, Giacomo Puccini watched a performance of David Belasco’s one-act play Madama Butterfly. He found the piece so heartbreaking that he immediately asked his publisher, Ricordi, to sort out the legal implications of the libretto to be made. Work could begin in early 1901, with Puccini’s favorite librettists, Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. The work went on passionately, which nothing proves better than that Illica even traveled to Nagasaki on the spot to enrich her experience of Japanese culture, and Puccini studied Japanese music with a similar dedication. However, the opera’s first performance failed in an ugly failure. It was the Brescia performance of the substantially reworked version that, on May 28, 1904, brought the creators the well-deserved and still successful success. In the heartbreaking history of opera, two cultures spaced light-years apart symbolize innocence and insensitivity; they represent the tragic encounter of unconditional trust and selfish laziness. Of course, all this was not shaped as a didactic tale by the creators of Madama Butterfly. The oppressive atmosphere of the oppressive story of Pinkerton, who knows the Japanese girl as a toy wife and the American officer who trusted him to the last and is faithful to his death, elevated to cathartic regions of art.
