Miss Saigon

Miss Saigon




Based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, Miss Saigon is set in the 1970s during the final days of and following the Vietnam War.


Story:

The Vietnam War is in its final days, and American soldiers are celebrating in careless escapades with Saigon’s prostitutes. Chris, a sergeant with a distaste for the club scene, is coerced to spend the night with a new bargirl, Kim. When they quickly fall in love and Chris bargains for her freedom from the bar owner, named the Engineer, a love saga begins that puts the characters’ moral convictions and honor codes to the test.
