De Nada Dance present Carlos Pons Guerra's inventive reimagining of Puccini's seminal opera.

Set in post-revolution Cuba, and under the flickering neon lights of a distant Caribbean port, Mariposa tells of a local rent boy and a foreign sailor who fall ominously in love. A story in which a young man is asked to sacrifice his gender in exchange of love and a better life.  

Featuring an original score by Spanish composer Luis Miguel Cobo - inspired by Caribbean sounds as well as Puccini, Mariposa also features libretto is by French-Indian writer Karthika Nair and designs by Ryan Laight.
