La Fanciulla del West is based on American author, David Balisco’s, The Girl of the Golden West. This symphonic poem by Giacomo Puccini premiered in New York in 1910, and has been incredibly popular ever since. The story was originally set near a California gold mining camp in the mid-1800s. However, Opera Colorado has transported the story to Colorado through collaborations with the Denver Public Library and History Colorado. Historical photos will become a powerful video backdrop for the wild and tempestuous story. Many academics and musicians agree that this is Puccini’s greatest work.

Gaetano Donizetti composed Lucia di Lammermoor in 1835, which was largely performed in Europe until the early 1840s, when it made its American debut in New Orleans. Incorporating everything from romance to feuds and violent wars, the performance seems to appeal to almost every demographic. After World War II, there were a few sopranos under the notion that it needed to be instrumentally refreshed. After being invigorated, the opera has sustained its popularity by appearing as number 21 on Operabase’s worldwide list of most performed operas.
