Giacomo Puccini

Oper in 3 Akten (1904)



Die japanische Geisha Cio-Cio-San, genannt Butterfly, schwelgt im Glück, als sie der amerikanische Marineleutnant Pinkerton zur Frau nimmt. Die Liebe der beiden findet ihren musikalischen Höhepunkt in einem fulminanten Duett, aber schon kurz darauf bringt ein Kriegsschiff den Soldaten zurück in seine Heimat.
Welten und Werte prallen aufeinander, denn während sich Pinkerton frei fühlt und eine Amerikanerin heiratet, wartet Butterfly voller Liebe und Sehns ht drei Jahre lang auf die Rückkehr ihres Mannes – zusammen mit dem gemeinsamen Kind.
In ihrer berühmten Arie »Un bel dì vedremo« malt sie sich in schillernden Farben den Tag aus, an dem der Geliebte wieder vor ihr steht.

Doch dann taucht Pinkerton an der Seite seiner amerikanischen Frau auf, und Cio-Cio-San fällt eine unumstößliche Entscheidung.
Die musikalische Leitung übernimmt Dirigent Enrique Mazzola, der auch für die Rigoletto-Einstudierung zuständig war. Regisseur Andreas Homoki, Intendant des Opernhauses Zürich, bringt ein international erfolgreiches Team mit, das im magischen Bühnenbild von Michael Levine mit feinen Landschaftsmalereien japanisches Flair an den Bodensee zaubert –nicht zuletzt in den farbenfrohen Kostümen Antony McDonalds, der auf der Seebühne bereits Ein Maskenball und La Bohème mit verantwortete.


3 days / 2 nights HALFBOARD

As usual ever year, the Bregenzer Festspiele, the Opera Festival on the largest floating stage in the world proudly presents a beautiful work with renowned Operas, this time for the second year will play Madame Butterfly from Giacomo Puccini. Come with us to this magnificent piece of art, starting in Konstanz and enjoying the awesome Lake Constance. In three days, we want to show you the largest city on the Lake where in the XV Century was decided who would be the next catholic Pope, the wine region with exclusive wines like the Pinot Noir and an abbey dedicated to produce wines for centuries. We will also prepare you to the Opera bringing you on ambient in a Japanese restaurant and we will approach on a special ship directly to the floating stage. Come with EUROLATINO and live your classical adventure! If you don´t want to participate on the activities, we can offer you only the entrance to the performance. And if you want to take part partially on the tour, it is also possible, as well as adding other activities round the Lake Constance or transfers from/to the Zurich Airport.

DAY 1  (Tuesday, August 15)  KONSTANZ   Welcome to Lake Constance (Bodensee) If nothing else arranged, we will welcome you at the Hotel upon your arrival. Konstanz is a university city, the largest city at the shores of the lake with a huge medieval past. Konstanz was the seat of the Diocese for more than 1200 years. In the afternoon, start a walking tour with a professional guide who will show you the main attractions of the city. Join us on this classic city tour through the historic old town, which remained undestroyed during the Second World War! Learn from our city guides the history of the Celts, Romans and Alemanni over the time as an important trading metropolis, the time of the Council Assembly, the Reformation, the affiliation to Tyrol to today’s city of education (University of Excellence!), tourism and the EU’s external border. Spiced with numerous anecdotes, we introduce you to the old council city on Lake Constance during this entertaining city tour. Experience the history(s) of Constance up close, find out what has been going on here in the past 5000 years, get to know the pretty girl Imperia, and your eyes open to the often-hidden treasures left by the rich heritage of the city’s past. Discover the consistency of the day before yesterday, yesterday and today! After the tour free time for private activities like shopping or just to rest. At the given time, we will pick you up and take you to the Restaurant Umami in the city center. The restaurant is specialized in sushi and is one of the best in the region. There are also other specialties besides sushi if you don´t like the idea. Return to the hotel. Overnight at the Constantia Hotel 3***. (D)

DAY 2  (Wednesday, August 16)  KONSTANZ – LINDAU – BREGENZ  

Opera evening with Cio-Cio  

Breakfast at the hotel. The morning is at leisure to relax at the hotel, go in the city for a walk or shopping. In the afternoon we will offer you a Bodensee Lake Tour and a Wine Tasting. The Lake Constance region is internationally known for its wine variety. The region has been cultivating diverse grape varieties for more than 2000 years. The grape varieties Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Noir play a special role here. The exciting thing about the regional wines is that while they grow under the same climatic conditions as other grapes, they express their own unique flavors due to the different soils and the artistry of Lake Constance winemakers. The tour begins with a visit to Meersburg, where you visit the vineum bodensee, an interactive wine museum, where you can look forward to a rich and varied interactive exhibition: fragrance jars representing the wines from around Lake Constance, wine as a lifestyle medium, the Torkelshow presenting the historical working wine press dating back to 1607 and much more. We will continue to the Meersburg State Vineyard. The earliest historical documentation of viticulture in Meersburg dates back to 1210. Nowadays the winery cultivates Pinot Noir, Müller-Thurgau, White Burgundy, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Before we continue, we will have a wine tasting at the “State Wine Estate”. The next stop is Lindau. Upon arrival, short break to walk around and visit its small but fascinating old city, followed by dinner in a typical german restaurant. The journey continues with a special ship to Bregenz. Start your Festival evening with an aperitif on board “MS München”. We will take you directly to the Festival stage and return to the lake stage after enjoying the opera. The all-round carefree package: no traffic jams on arrival and no search for a parking space, instead you can enjoy the panoramic view over Lake Constance and see the lake stage from the distance. From Lindau we will get back to Konstanz with our bus. Overnight at the Constantia Hotel 3*** or similar. (B) (D)
