Pierre Loti's novel was a huge success upon its publication in 1888. This is an autobiographical account of a young French naval officer who marries a Japanese wife in Nagasaki. The story inspired André Messager's 1893 opera as well as Giacomo Puccini's classic Madame Butterfly. Excerpts of Madame Chrysanthème by André Messager.
