The American soldier Pinkerton wants to 'marry' the geisha Butterfly (i.e. leave her again after his tour of duty). Butterfly, on the other hand, wants to become an American citizen. Problem: they fall in love for real. In the second act, Pinkerton has disappeared; Butterfly does not want to believe that he is not coming back. But he does come back – with his American wife, so that they can bring Butterfly’s child (who he has fathered) to America. Butterfly kills herself.
