Event Description:

Can opera – a centuries-old Italian art form be an effective medium for a Western – that quintessentially American and (relatively) new genre? Puccini thought so.

Opera Carolina’s new production of The Girl of the West (La fanciulla del West) is our first international collaboration with the Teatro di Giglio in Puccini’s hometown of Lucca, Italy, the Teatro Lirico in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, and the New York City Opera.

New production design by acclaimed Italian director Ivan Stefanutti. Sets and digital projections built by Opera Carolina. New costumes by Atelier Nicolao, Venice, Italy.
