PUCCINI: Fanciulla del West (La) (La Scala, 1991) (NTSC)

Puccini
FANCIULLA DEL WEST

Orchestra & Chorus of La Scala
Conductor Lorin Maazel

Puccini's Wild West opera has the California gold rush as its dramatic backdrop for a story in which Minnie, the only woman in a mining camp, gambles on her one chance of happiness. Lorin Maazel conducts a fine cast in Jonathan Miller's 1991 production of the compelling and evocative opera, which Puccini himself considered his best work.

Minnie Mara Zampieri, Jack Rance Juan Pons, Dick Johnson (Ramerrez) Placido Domingo
Nick Sergio Bertocchi, Ashby Luigi Roni, Sonora Antonio Salvadori

Part four in this collectable mid-price set, the DVD includes a 28 page booklet with full libretto by G. Civinini and C. Zangarini, after the play The Girl of the Golden West by David Belasco.
