Executive produced and commissioned by the Royal Albert Hall, Butterfly was created from a pitch session with schoolkids from London and Lincolnshire. It’s an entirely modern take on the story of Madam Butterfly from the opera by Puccini. All the costumes are created with body paint and make-up and the film was almost entirely shot on a rooftop in Camden Town, North London.
