Jonas Kaufmann in Met Opera’s La Fanciulla Del West

Ahead of our live broadcast of Met Opera's La Fanciulla Del West, we have an exclusive clip of Jonas Kaufmann rehearsing ahead of his live performance.


Puccini’s gunpowder western returns to the stage where it premiered under Arturo Toscanini. Gold Rush, 1849. Bar owner Minnie looks after a crew of rough miners while fending off the unwanted attention of the local sheriff. When a tall, mysterious stranger walks into the bar, it looks as if her life is about to change. But the newcomer is not what he seems, and Minnie gets drawn into deadly peril. Boasting gunfights, poker games, and stagecoach robbers, La Fanciulla del West combines the action of a great adventure with the emotional punch of Italian opera. Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings the role of the gunslinging heroine, alongside Jonas Kaufmann as the outlaw who steals her heart. Marco Armiliato conducts.

Met Opera Live: La Fanciulla Del West is broadcast live to Picturehouse Cinemas on Saturday 27 Oct.
