JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
The Grand Teton Music Festival’s exciting season of Live in HD broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera continues this Thursday, December 13 at 7PM with Puccini’s wild west opera The Girl of the Golden West.
Considered by Puccini himself as “the best opera I have written,” The Girl of the Golden West is a spirited production set during the California Gold Rush. The title character is one of the composer’s most appealing heroines—a strong, independent woman determined to win the man she loves. Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek is Puccini’s gun-slinging, tough-as-nails girl and tenor Jonas Kaufmann makes a heralded return to the Met stage as the outlaw she loves. Marco Armiliato conducts, and Susanna Phillips hosts the broadcast’s exclusive interviews with cast.
The Metropolitan Opera stages more than 200 performances in New York each year, and the Grand Teton Music Festival is proud to share the Met’s historic productions with the Jackson Hole community. This year, the series is presented at the Jackson Hole Twin Cinema—295 West Pearl Avenue. Doors open at 6:45PM.
