The Girl of the Golden West
Half a century before Clint Eastwood gathered dollars by the fistful, Giacomo Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West put an operatic spin on the western. Audiences are transported back to the Gold Rush of the 1850s, finding themselves in a dusty camp populated by miners, bandits, lawmen, and the rifle-totin’, Bible-quotin’ girl who captivates them all. This is Minnie, the owner of the one-horse town’s one-horse saloon, who refuses to love any man—until the mysterious Dick Johnson moseys through the door. But their newfound romance is threatened by Sheriff Jack Rance, who wants Minnie for himself. Performed in Italian with English supertitles, The Girl of the Golden West moves audiences of all ages with its blend of tender romance and rollicking action.
Opera Coeur d’Alene
With the goal of finding a vocal complement to the beauty of Lake Coeur d’Alene, a group of classical music lovers created a company they called Opera Plus in 2000. While the organization is now known as Opera Coeur d’Alene, it still treats eyes and ears to waterside Opera on the Lake performances. Those annual serenades to resident plesiosaurs are supplemented with classic operas by the likes of Verdi and Bizet, and youth-aimed works such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Toy Shop. Whether attendees are young or young-at-heart, Opera Coeur d’Alene believes that opera is an art for everyone, and their varied seasons ensure the inland Northwest doesn’t miss out.
