[video] Why Madame Butterfly inspired playwright Yang-May Ooi to write Butterfly In Blue Jeans – Butterfly Diary

In this video, writer Yang-May Ooi explains why Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly inspired – or provoked – her to write her new play Butterfly in Blue Jeans.


Butterfly in Blue Jeans is new play by writer Yang-May Ooi, featuring Julie Cheung-Inhin. It is directed by Jessica Higgs and produced by Papergang Theatre. We are currently seeking funding. Butterfly Diary is a video blog  that follows the progress of the development of the play from first idea to full production.
