Summary M Butterfly è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and soon to be back on Broadway in a revival directed by the Lion King's Julie Taymor starring Clive Owen A brilliant play of ideas a visionary work that bridges the history and culture of two worlds Frank Rich New York TimesBased on a true story that stunned the world and inspired by Giacomo Puccini's opera Madama Butterfly M Butterfly was an immediate sensation when it premiered in 1988 It opens in the cramped prison cell where diplomat Rene Gallimard is being held c. EDIT I m watching Watchmen right now and every time I see Jeremy Iron s face I am reminded of how much i dislike the movie version of this this is not a tragic love story it s a commentary on imperialism and gendered racism don t watch the movie it s fine but you will not understand why this play is so good Since I ve emphasized that I am physically incapable of conveying how obsessed I am with this play This little play was based off a true incident in which a French diplomat fell in love with a Chinese woman only to discover that his love was a man spying on him all along something the diplomat insisted he did not know The public of course reacted in disbelief But when David Henry Hwang heard this story in the 1980s his reaction was not of disbelief but of belief if the spy were playing the submissive Asian woman how could she not fool him Song performs the version of submissive Asian womanhood Gallimard finds most appealing Song tells us that The West thinks of itself as masculine so the East is feminine her mouth says no but her eyes say yes The West believes the East deep down wants to be dominated This is the lens by which she caters performance at times outspoken but always loving the white Western man But the burden of this performance does not fall primarily on Song Gallimard has grown up in a society where he has been taught to view Butterfly through a prism thus he does not think to uestion whether or not she genuinely fits the image she projects Gallimard in every moment sees himself as Pinkerton and Song as Butterfly This is the lens with which he loves her This is also incidentally the reason I heavily disliked the movie adaptation of this play To make Song a person in love with Gallimard fails the text Song could be in love with Gallimard but that is not the point and not the tragedy To make Gallimard so easily believe the reveal that Song is not who she says she is fails the text as well Gallimard has never loved Song only ever the idea of Song Most of the changes in narrative come from removing the fourth wall breaks and making the entire play diegetic taking place in real life rather than fantasy These are each misguided and bad choices I have a lot to say about this my final paper in a class this semester was about this play but I am going to end this review with a compilation of uotes from this show that made me go absolutely buckwildRene While we men may all want to kick Pinkerton very few of us would pass up the opportunity to be Pinkerton Rene Yes actually I ve forgotten everything My mind you see there wasn t enough room in this hard head not for the world and for you Song Rene I ve never done what you ve said Why should it be any different in your mindSong Your mouth says no but your eyes say yes Rene You showed me your true self When all I loved was the lie Rene I m a man who loved a woman created by a man Everything else simply falls short Blog Twitter Instagram Spotify Youtube About

Summary M Butterfly è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Aptive by the French government and by his own illusions He recalls a time when Song Liling the beautiful Chinese diva touched him with a love as vivid as seductive and as elusive as a butterflyHow could he have known that his true love was in fact a spy for the Chinese government and a man disguised as a woman The diplomat relives the twenty year affair from the temptation to the seduction from its consummation to the scandal that ultimately consumed them both M Butterfly is one of the most compelling explosive and slyly humorous dramas ever to lig. White male privilege will fuck you upThere are a couple awkward lines and sometimes it feels like Hwang is being far too obvious with the themes of the play not letting the audience work them out for themselves but overall M Butterfly is a fascinating study of racial and gender stereotypes in an East vs West battle of sorts It s also an interesting puzzle to work out with both leads providing their subjective view points of events distorting the truth to show the fantasies they had created It openly embraces its theatricality which is one of the reasons the movie is so disappointing in my opinion it focused too much on realism which made it feel so awkward The incorporation of the actual opera Madame Butterfly into the play provides an interesting mirror to the characters s situation although the parallels do veer dangerously close to melodrama in one or two scenes Obviously the premise is one that may reuire a real suspense of disbelief for some although it is based on a true story but that feels natural to the play itself Rene has spent so long building up his perfect fantasy living out Madame Butterfly with his own apparently submissive beautiful Chinese woman and he s desperate to hold onto it even in the face of destruction It s a play that would reuire a strong director and actors to match Highly recommended
