Tickets for the King's Head theatre's production of Madame Butterfly (which started on 8 February) seem to be flying out of the door - the show is already sold out until 21 February.

Never fear, though, as the opera runs on until the 18th of March.

However, there's now also a special evening to book tickets for - a gala performance of Puccini's classic tragedy will take place on 2 March, followed by an after-show reception with drinks, canapés, live music and the opportunity to meet the cast and creative team.

Proceeds from this one-off event will raise crucial funds to help secure the future of the King's Head Theatre, and ensure that they are able to keep producing high quality, accessible and affordable opera for years to come.
