Miss Saigon

Musical

Writers: Alain Boublil Claude-Michel Schönberg Richard Maltby, Jr.

Context

Coming off the success of Les Miserables, their first musical collaboration, Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil turned their focus to another epic historical landscape for their second project: the Vietnam War. Their musical, Miss Saigon, is an adaptation of famous composer Giacomo Puccini’s opera, Madama Butterfly, reconceived in the context of 1970s Saigon, during the Vietnam War. Like Puccini’s opera, which centers around the romance between an American lieutenant and a geisha, Miss Saigon tells the story of Chris, an American GI, who falls in love with Kim, a Vietnamese prostitute.
