The Girl of the Golden West: Opera in Tallinn

“The Girl of the Golden West” (“La fanciulla del West”) is the second opera by Giacomo Puccini based on a Belasco play. Puccini’s gorgeous melodies and orchestral colours are set against the backdrop of a gold‐mining frontier camp, where a poker‐playing, pistol‐carrying saloon owner Minnie finds herself in a love triangle with a handsome outlaw Dick Johnson alias José Ramirez and the sheriff Jack Rance, who is in hot pursuit of him. Minnie has to fight for her love and for the chance to start a new life with her love by her side.
