Based on Puccini's grand opera Madama Butterfly, this epic production centers around the tragic tale of a doomed romance between a Vietnamese woman abandoned by her American lover during the last days of the Vietnam War. Written by Claude-Michel Schoenberg and Alain Boublil with lyrics by Boublil and Richard Maltby, Jr, the show was inspired by a photograph found by Schoenberg that showed a Vietnamese mother leaving her child at the departure gate at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, where the child would board a plane headed for the USA and her American ex-GI father, who would provide a better life. Called by Schoenberg "the ultimate sacrifice," this ideal is central to the plot of "Miss Saigon."
