Puccini’s opera, set in the American West during the Gold Rush, brings to life the story of Minnie, a gun-toting, saloon-owning Sunday school teacher. All the cowboys want to marry Minnie. With a high-stakes poker game and the most romantic serenades from a bandit-turned-lover you’ll ever hear, The Girl of the Golden West is an opera worth going all-in for.
