The fact that this design uses a painted illustration works because it means it is able to show the emotion of the image better. The illustration helps show the pain of loss that she Has been through. The typeface used is more than suitable for Madame butterfly as it shows elegance but i don't think it works strongly on this poster because of the illustration.

visual communication - as you can see that a giesha girl is clearly displayed, this gives us an understanding that the opera is more than likely set in Japan, as the girl is set with her back to us could demonstrate the heart ache she receives in the opera. the red butterfly also relates to the title of the opera and the colour red demonstrates mixed emotions such as love and anger
