Cio-Cio San is happy about the upcoming marriage, having given up her Buddhist religion for Christianity, hoping that Pinkerton will bring her once-wealthy family out of debt. Pinkerton is also happy but admits to his friend US Consul Sharpless that although he is infatuated with Madame Butterfly, he hopes to return to the United States and marry an American woman. At the end of the act, the wedding takes place, but Cio-Cio San's family leaves and severs all ties with her.
The second Act takes place three years after Pinkerton's ship sailed for America shortly after the wedding and without Pinkerton saying goodbye. Madame Butterfly continues to wait for him with her maid in ever-increasing poverty, despite her maid's warning that he will not return.

Sharpless comes to Cio-Cio San's house with a letter from Pinkerton saying he will return but does not plan on staying, but Sharpless can't give it to her after she tells him about their child which Pinkerton does not know about, named Dolore. Pinkerton's ship comes in but he does not visit Cio-Cio San. Pinkerton flees when he realizes that Butterfly still loves him, leaving his wife and Sharpless to break the news.
Butterfly says she will give up the child if Pinkerton comes to see her one more time, and then she commits suicide before he can return. Madama Butterfly was based on a short story written by American lawyer and writer Luther Long, based on the recollections of his sister who had been a Methodist Missionary in Japan.
