A scene steeped in melancholy and sadness: The gold diggers in Puccini’s opera La fanciulla del West based on David Belasco’s Drama The Girl of the Golden West have lost all hope of wealth and riches. The bitter reality – the bleak slog of hard work. Much laborious digging brings only a little gold; barely enough to keep body and soul together. Minnie alone, the only woman in the camp, barmaid and person of authority, brings a little comfort and affection to their existence. But of course she too longs for true and pure love. And here is the mysterious newcomer, who also harbours a dark secret. He is head of a brutal band of thieves, with money on his head. Can he leave his past behind him, start again or even find forgiveness in such an inhospitable world? And with enhanced, highly emotional sound dramaturgy Puccini spears the opera at the question of what is stronger: Love or law?
