Heritage Opera, Northwest England’s professional touring opera company, returns to Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre with Puccini’s ‘Madame Butterfly’- the heartbreaking story of Cio Cio San, the Nagasaki geisha, and her unwavering belief that the husband who married, then deserted her, Lieutenant BF Pinkerton of the United States Navy, will one day return.

Sarah Helsby Hughes plays the trusting Cio Cio San, Nicholas Sales is the arrogant Pinkerton, and Serenna Wagner plays the faithful servant Suzuki. They are supported by a cast of seven professional singers, and an orchestral ensemble of 6 players. 

Blackfriars Theatre is run predominately by volunteers. The full voluntary Refurbishment levy plus gift aid, if applicable, will create a special fund to help maintain and refurbish the towns precious traditional little Theatre. This fund will also allow us to seek 'match funding' opportunities to enhance your theatre experience.

Please note: Following the latest government announcement - Mask Wearing is now compulsory in Blackfriars Theatre. All productions will be managed in a Covid Secure way, more information on what that entails can be found on our Blackfriars Covid 19 Guidance page which can be found under the Booking Tab at the top of our website. Thank you for your support and understanding. We hope you enjoy the show and encourage others to help Keep Theatre Live in Boston.

Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
