About

Japan meets America in the tale of Cho-Cho San and her lover Pinkerton. During a slideshow lecture hear excerpts from the short story that inspired Puccini’s beloved opera. Discover the prevailing attitudes that brought the couple together, and the “temporary wives” who became real-life “Butterflies.” Afterwards, enjoy a special Japanese-themed afternoon tea in the 1784 Historic House and take home a keepsake favor bag.
