Maryland Lyric Opera:
La Fanciulla del West In Concert
Puccini’s rarely performed masterwork La Fanciulla del West is a romantic Western epic featuring one of opera’s greatest scores and lushest orchestrations. The two casts are led by internationally acclaimed sopranos Susan Bullock and Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs in the title role of Minnie, who stands alongside Tosca and Butterfly as one of Puccini’s greatest heroines. The 75-member Maryland Lyric Opera Orchestra appears on stage with the principal singers and chorus and is conducted by Music Director Louis Salemno. Visit www.mdlo.org for more details.
