The Met: Live in HD and The Beacon present La fanciulla del West

The next performance in this year’s series of Met: Live in HD opera broadcasts will feature Puccini’s La fanciulla del West on March 24 at 1 p.m. sharp at The Beacon Theatre in Burns Lake. Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings Puccini’s gun-slinging heroine Minnie, in this romantic epic of the Wild West. Based on an American play “The Girl of the Golden West”, by the playwright who also wrote “Madame Butterfly”, this is Puccini’s operatic take on the gold rush era in the US. The production marks the heralded return to the Met of tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the role of outlaw Dick Johnson, whom Minnie loves. Baritone Željko Lučić is the vigilante sheriff Jack Rance. Marco Armiliato conducts the fabulous Met orchestra. Saddle up! Tickets are $12 each, and are available at the door, starting at 12:30 p.m.
