LA FANCIULLA Del West, Puccini’s 1910 opera set in the American Wild West, will be staged by The New York Metropolitan Opera and broadcast live to Galway this week.
La Fanciulla Del West will be screened in The Eye Cinema, Wellpark, this Saturday at 6pm as part of The Met: Live in HD series.
Set in a mining camp during the California Gold Rush, saloon owner Minnie has her sights set on the mysterious Dick Johnson, and nothing - not horses, hangmen, nor a high-stakes poker game - can keep her from finding true love.
Deborah Voigt will sing the title role of Minnie, Marcello Giordani will play Dick Johnson, and Lucio Gallo as the villainous sheriff Jack Rance.
