“The overriding major theme is the parallel between the album and the opera Madame Butterfly. The story of both the opera and the album are similar; love found, love lost, lover lost. The opera revolves around the love between Butterfly and Captain Pinkerton (hence the album’s name and the name of the final track), while this album revolves around the various rejections and resulting confusion in Rivers’ life. The album mirrors Madame Butterfly in that it mirrors the progression of a confused and painful relationship.” (>>)
