I look back into the plays and musicals I’ve watched over the last two years and realized I didn’t write about M Butterfly. I watched this alone at the Maybank Performing Arts Theatre at Bonifacio Global City on September 2018. Back then I was still within my 1 year work hiatus so I had all the time to immerse myself more into arts. When I read about this play, I was intrigued by the story hence my immediate booking.
The story was about a Chinese opera singer who disguised himself as a woman and lured a French diplomat into falling in love. The lead actor was RS Francisco, and of the cast the only one I know of is Pinky Amador.
While M Butterfly wasn’t my favorite play from the last two years, what I’ll remember most about it was M Butterfly’s beautiful costumes that were colorful, tasteful and appealing to my eyes.
