The Royal Opera House

Puccini: La fanciulla del West Blu-ray (Vienna State Opera) 2013

A celebrated new production of Puccini’s La fanciulla del West from Vienna State Opera, staged by Marco Arturo Marelli with the feel of a gritty modern drama during the American gold rush of 1849. Puccini’s glorious opera tells the tale of Minnie, a bartender whom all the local men adore, and Dick Johnson alias Ramerrez, a notorious bandit. Dick and Minnie fall in love on first meeting, so much so that he vows to change his life as a bandit. The roles are taken by two of the great singers of their generation, Nina Stemme and Jonas Kaufmann.
