Puccini: La Fanciulla Del West / Rizzi/Netherlands PO, Westbroek, Gallo [Blu-Ray]

Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : La fanciulla del West
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Nikolaus Lehnhoff's Hollywood-style production updates this Wild West story to the capitalist culture of Wall Street, perfectly reflecting Puccini's innovatory spirit. In a new angle on the age-old love triangle theme, corrupt Sheriff Jack Rance (Lucio Gallo) and charismatic criminal Dick Johnson (Zoran Todorovich) vie for the love of glamorous blonde and devout Christian Minnie (Eva-Maria Westbroek), finding her way in a man's world. Carlo Rizzi's idiomatic conducting draws excellent singing from the large cast and fine playing from The Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.
