Based on Giacomo Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly, Miss Saigon tells the intriguing and heartbreaking story of a young Vietnamese bar girl, Kim (Mariah Victoria Burks), and an American G.I., Chris (Michael Glavan), who fall in love during the Vietnam War. When the two are unjustly separated, their lives unfold in ways they had not imagined. This spirited rock opera explores how far we are willing to go for someone we love, and celebrates the power of hope in a time of corruption and suffering.
