Ah! Dear dear Cio-Cio San. Basically Alfie, it is the age old tale of girl gets guy, girl looses guy, then decideds that hara kiri is the way to go. General saturday night leftover stuff at the local barn dance type of victim thing! Plots, sub-plots, and of course not loosing face!

Just a guess, but isn't Puccini Italian? Maybe Madame is spelt differently in Italian..
