The Players:
Reporter for The Dallas Opera News                  Goro, the marriage broker
Suzuki, Madame Butterfly’s maid                     Sharpless, the American Consul
(standing next to the reporter)                     Family members (2-4 people)

Everyone is standing outside of the American Consulate.

 Reporter: Good morning. We are coming live to you from Nagasaki, Japan. We have sad news.
Many have rushed here to the American Consulate to learn what has become of Madame Butterfly.
You may have known her as Cio-Cio-San. Police are saying her death was a suicide. They did
question Naval Officer B. F. Pinkerton earlier, before he left. He declined to speak with us. We do
have Ms. Suzuki here with us. Ms. Suzuki, you were Madame Butterfly’s maid? Can you tell us what
led to this tragic event?

 Suzuki: Yes, I have been with her so long. Madame Butterfly always felt things deeply. She married
Pinkerton for evermore. She gave up her own religion. She stood up to her family. They were angry
when Madame Butterfly said she was going to be American. Then Pinkerton left. He was away for
three years. This was a very hard time. Many men offered to marry the beautiful Madame Butterfly.
She always said no! She always said Pinkerton would return. Madame Butterfly was so happy when
she knew Pinkerton’s ship had returned. She was so sad when she learned he had a new American
wife. It broke her heart. Pinkerton wanted to take their son away. His wife Kate asked me to talk to
Madame Butterfly. I was so sad. Madame Butterfly felt she had no honor left. Madame Butterfly’s
own father lived and died saying, “He dies with honor who can no longer live with honor.” This is
Japanese tradition. Now Madame Butterfly has taken her life. She used her father’s sword, the same
sword he used to kill himself. Pinkerton has taken Madame Butterfly’s son. I weep with sadness.

Reporter: I’m sorry for your loss. Thank you for speaking with me, Ms. Suzuki.
(Suzuki walks away crying.)

 (Goro walks right up to the Reporter and introduces himself.)
 Goro: My name is Goro. I arranged the marriage. It’s my job. I arranged for the house, too. Pinkerton
liked the idea of Japanese contracts. These contracts last for 999 years or until any month the man
decides time is up. When he went to back to America, I tried to help. I brought young men who wanted
to marry Madame Butterfly. “No! No! No!” she said. “We have a son. My husband will come home to
me.” Ha! She even said no to the rich Prince! And now it has come to this. Too bad, so sad.

Reporter: Yes, yes, this is sad. Thank you.

(Goro nods and walks away.)

(Sharpless walks up to the reporter quickly.)
Sharpless: It was only a misunderstanding.

Reporter: Sir, who are you?

 Sharpless: I’m the American Consul. It was all a misunderstanding. Pinkerton always made it clear
to me that his marriage to Madame Butterfly was temporary. I warned him. I told him that she really
wanted to marry him. It didn’t seem to matter. He said he would return to America to take a real
wife. Pinkerton left for three years. He did marry an American woman. Recently he came back. He
was surprised to learn that he has a son. Pinkerton said it was better for his son to go with him to the
United States. And now he’s gone.

Reporter: Thanks for the information, Mr. Sharpless. Excuse me, now.
(Reporter walks away from Sharpless and over to a group of people.)
Hello. Are you members of Madame Butterfly’s family?

Family members (all speaking at once): Yes, yes, we are!

Family members (speaking individually):
We never did like Pinkerton.
He was a selfish man, an American.
Cio-Cio-San was a fool. She left her family values to marry him.
Look how this has ended. We are not surprised.

Reporter: Thank you. I see you are upset. Thank you for speaking with us today.
(Reporter moves away from family members and speaks to the audience.)
We will be posting new information as it comes in. Check back with us for the time and place of the
Memorial Service for Madame Butterfly. This is (Student says own name.) for The Dallas Opera
News. Good day.
