About this event

Puccini’s gunpowder western returns to the stage where it premiered under Arturo Toscanini. Boasting gunfights, poker games, and stagecoach robbers, ‘La Fanciulla del West’ combines the action of a great adventure with the emotional punch of Italian opera.

Gold Rush, 1849. Bar owner Minnie looks after a crew of rough miners while fending off the unwanted attentions of the local sheriff. When a tall, mysterious stranger walks into the bar, it looks as if her life is about to change. But the newcomer is not what he seems and Minnie gets drawn into deadly peril.

Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings the role of the gunslinging heroine, alongside Jonas Kaufmann as the outlaw who steals her heart. Marco Armiliato conducts.

Sung In Italian with Met Titles In English
