M. Butterfly, one of Broadway’s most acclaimed and beloved plays returns in a viscerally theatrical new production directed by Julie Taymor, the groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning director of The Lion King, and starring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Clive Owen.
A groundbreaking play. A visionary director. A story of love, espionage and betrayal. M. Butterfly charts the scandalous romance between a married French diplomat and a mysterious Chinese opera singer – a remarkable love story of international espionage and betrayal. Their 20-year relationship pushed and blurred the boundaries between male and female, east and west – while redefining the nature of love and the devastating cost of deceit.
