Immerse yourself in Puccini's Madam Butterfly at 3D screenings in Greenwich's Odeon

First published in Stage by

Theatre enthusiasts who missed Madam Butterfly on stage have the chance to see the next best thing.

A 3D movie filmed during the live performance at Covent Garden last year is premiering at a Greenwich cinema next month.

Co-produced between RealD and the Royal Opera House, Puccini’s heartrending tale of love and betrayal has been brought to the big screen in Julian Napier’s exquisite film, where the characters and key moments of the action are heightened and enriched through the immersive power of 3D.

Joseph Peixoto, president of Worldwide Cinema at RealD, said: “We are committed to leveraging the immersive power of our 3D technology to give audiences a truly differentiated entertainment experience while providing our theatre partners with exclusive added value content.

“Madam Butterfly in RealD 3D will allow audiences to go beyond simply watching the performance and feel as if they’ve literally stepped into Covent Garden and on stage alongside the performers.” The show will be screened at Greenwich Odeon on Monday, March 5 at 7pm and on Sunday, March 11 at 2pm.
