It lasted 3 hours, but seemed much shorter. Good cast, nice sets, the result is really enjoyable.
The seats were a bit far away, I had to by opera glasses after the 1st act because we were so far I couldn't see the expressions on the singer's face. If you have some at home, don't forget to bring them.
Quotes & Highlights
See video excerpts from the opera at the SF Opera website.
A crafty criminal. A suspicious sheriff. A frontier woman with a tender heart who knows how to shoot a gun. If they sound like characters from a classic Western, they are—except their gunfights and poker games are set to a brilliant, blazing score. A love triangle set during the California Gold Rush, the work Puccini considered “the best of my operas,” returns home for the first time in three decades in celebration of its 100th anniversary. Nicola Luisotti conducts a rip-snortin’ cast led by Deborah Voigt, “a soprano of penetrating power and clarity” (The New York Times), and Salvatore Licitra, “a tenor at the top of his form” (San Francisco Chronicle).
