Sung in Italian with Swedish surtitles.

Celebrated soprano Malin Byström is back in the WILD WEST opera La fanciulla del West


Minnie serves whiskey and bible citations from behind the bar to a rough crowd in a gold mining camp in California. When Dick Johnson turns up, Minnie falls head over heels in love. It turns out that Dick is a wanted bandit by the name of Ramerrez. The sheriff wants to court Minnie, but everything goes wrong when he discovers that she is hiding Ramerrez. Minnie outwits the sheriff by cheating at poker…

Christof Loy’s Wild West staging of La fanciulla del West premiered in 2011. Loy has called it a »modern classic about completely ordinary people in extraordinarily vulnerable situations«. Court singer Malin Byström, winner of the International Opera Award in 2018, is cast in the role of Minnie. Conductor is Royal Swedish Opera’s Music Director Alan Gilbert.
