Drawn from real-life events, this modern classic weaves realism, ritual, and vivid theatricality into a haunting tale of a French diplomat’s gradual, inevitable submission to the charms of a Chinese opera star who personifies his fantasy vision of submissive oriental sexuality. The play underscores the irony of that fantasy as it parallels the events of Puccini’s opera Madama Butterfly and becomes a powerful exploration of East-West relations and the romanticism that clouds and complicates them to this day.  Intended for mature audiences ages 17 and up.
