Thanks to Palace Opera & Ballet, we has 5 double passes to giveaway for cinema screenings of the La Scala’s LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST on June 19.
Directed for the stage by Robert Carsen, and conducted by Riccardo Chailly, La Scala’s glorious new production of Puccini’s 1850’s-set “spaghetti western” bursts with life. The sumptuous music transports us right to the Polka saloon where passions, as well as humanity and brotherhood, triumph. Minnie (Dutch soprano Barbara Haveman) is the bar’s manageress, Dick Johnson (Marcelo Álvarez) is the stranger she falls for, going beyond mere appearances to see his good heart and a potential for happiness. Performed in Italian, with English subtitles.
