The premiere of Fanciulla del West, the seventh title in Puccini's production, was staged on 10 December 1910 at the Metropolitan in New York: on the podium Arturo Toscanini.
A leap back to the era of the Greek myth, a return to the origins of the tragedy, of 414 BC, with music that consecrated the composer's talent.
The events of Count d'Almaviva (Lindoro), Figaro (the barber), Rosina, Bartolo (Rosina's tutor), Don Basilio, Berta, Ambrogio and Fiorello unfold in a sequence of misunderstandings, disguises, surprises, and 'apart ', seamlessly.
Direction and orchestral conducting in this production are entrusted to two young talents from the Italian scene: Roberto Catalano and Jacopo Brusa.
