Miss Saigon School Edition is an epic, daring musical that is universal in its emotional power. The sung-through, pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong singers ample opportunities to shine. Meanwhile, its fluid cinematic structure gives directors and designers a field day for creativity. Music Theatre International worked closely with the Miss Saigon’s creators to ensure this lightly edited adaptation – Miss Saigon School Edition – stays true the intent of the original piece while becoming appropriate for secondary school performers.

It is based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, and similarly tells the tragic tale of a doomed romance involving an Asian woman abandoned by her American lover.The setting of the plot is relocated to the 1970s Saigon during the Vietnam War and Madame Butterfly’s story of marriage between and American lieutenant and geisha is replaced by a romance between and American GI and a Vietnamese bargirl.
