PUCCINI’S THE GIRL OF THE GOLDEN WEST (LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST) - June 18, 2010 - San Francisco War Memorial Opera House 


Who would have thought Puccini would write about the Gold Rush of California? It’s a story about a strong-willed woman who gets her man, a love sick sheriff and an outlaw who is saved.  All had very strong voices and it was a very innovative set.
