Madama Butterfly and Norma; two unforgettable women from Bellini and Puccini's eponymous operas. Both heroines tragically died for love. Before I Die shows them in the liminal zone between life and death where they find themselves following their demise. The arias allow them to relive passionate love tragedies. Next, there is a confrontation with their former lover. How did it all go so wrong? And what about the other side of the story? An extraordinary and emotional music theatre production about love, sacrifice, and reconciliation! The up-and-coming talented Mart van Berckel has directed the performance.
