A new production from Marco Arturo Marelli brought one of Puccini's rarely performed works, La Fanciulla del West, to the Vienna State Opera stage in September 2013. In his role debut, superstar tenor Jonas Kaufmann as the wanted and notorious bandit Ramerrez proves "ideally cast, full of power, with his breathtakingly beautiful baritone timbre, full of mellow italianità." said Kurier News. Starring alongside Kaufmann is Swedish opera star Nina Stemme with the Vienna Orchestra conducted by celebrated maestro Franz Wesler-Möst.
The Daily Telegraph
The world's greatest tenor.
Nina Stemme and Kaufmann are the opera's must-see couple for a generation. The rich playing of the Vienna orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst shows up the color and detail of Puccini's score to spectacular effect.
New York Times
The orchestra plays superbly under Franz Welser-Möst and the singers could hardly be better.
