The Israel Opera renews its tradition of Opera in the Park with a free, fully staged performance of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly this Thursday (8:30 p.m.; doors open at 7 p.m.) in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park.

Puccini’s poignant score follows the tragic tale of Cio Cio San (Ira Bertman), a young Japanese girl who falls in love with American naval officer Pinkerton (Davide Giusti), with devastating consequences.
