    Well played, both. Must mention @Canuck as he replied by PM.

    First one. The lady is Cynthia Payne, a notorious English brothel owner, know as Madam Cyn.
    Second clue is obvious, so we have Madam Butterfly.

    Working through the next lot.

    Person dreaming
    The O girl

    Un / bel / dì, ve / drem / o (One fine day, we'll see)


    It's a beautiful aria that I was enjoyed one night at Hamer Hall (Melbourne's "Opera House").
    The only downside was an older gentleman, seated to my right, continually sobbing and muttering about how beautiful it was while dabbing away tears with a huge floral handkerchief.
    It was quite off-putting so I had to have a very quiet word in his delicate (and extremely fragrant) ear.
    He was a bit quieter after that, but I could feel vicious side glances every now and again.
    I don't think he could believe that the Philistine who had whispered "those words" to him could possibly enjoy or appreciate opera.

    How rebus submissions have changed! I am constantly impressed at the mental gymnastics necessary to solve ones like Madam Butterfly! Well done!

    Sometimes, it’s best not to ask.

    You might not like the answer…

    That's Dr Who, so your '?' actually works quite well as an answer! Nice solve

    Brilliant rebus, brilliant answer. I should have recognized Windsor, having been there.
