Abstract:

""Fanciulla promises to become a second Boheme, but more powerful, bolder, and broader," said Puccini of his unique melodrama in which Italian opera meets the wild, wild West. La Fanciulla del West boasts brilliant musical themes, drawing on American folk music for inspiration. It tells the story of a gold rush bandit who is redeemed by the power of love. The incomparable Placido Domingo stars as the renegade Dick Johnson, and soprano Mara Zampieri ignites the stage with her stirring portrayal of Minnie, the woman who lassos his heart and changes his life. Conducted by Lorin Maazel, the orchestra of La Scala and an extraordinary cast bring Puccini's masterpiece vividly to life."--Container.
