But you may like Miss Saigon: A sung-through non-opera of the same book that Madam Butterfly was based on by the same people who did Les Miserables!
Small world ain't it?
I loved Miss Saigon and thought I would like Madam Butterfly but it was so colourless stage wise. A very basic set and what is again a really sad story. Of course not being able to understand the language doesn't help, I have seen the ballet though and did enjoy that.
