In a co-production with the Serbian National Theatre of Novi Sad, we dance the opera as a ballet. The US lieutenant Pinkerton marries the Japanese geisha Cio-Cio-San - according to the tolerated custom of the time - for a short time: what is little more than a pastime for him means great love for her. After his departure, she waits a long time for his return: when he finally returns, Cio-Cio-San - who has borne him a son - must realize that he has remarried. In despair, she kills herself: "Honorable to die who can no longer live in honor." A beautiful and touching story, danced by the Europaballett after a choreography by Peter Breuer.
