A Tragic Love TaleMiss Saigon is based on Giacomo PucciniÕs 1904 opera Madame Butterfly. It tells a tragic love story of a romance between an Asian geisha and her American lover who served as a lieutenant in the United States Navy. Miss Saigon updates the setting to 1970s Saigon during the Vietnam War. The characters are replaced by Chris, a United States Marine and Kim, a South Vietnamese peasant turned bargirl. A major highlight of the musical includes the iconic helicopter descending into the set to evacuate the last American soldiers from Saigon while the chaotic crowd outside the United States embassy are abandoned outside the gates, separating the tragic lovers. Dramatic and emotionally heightened by the score, this scene is often the most memorable and reviewed scene in the musical.
