Opera Colorado Archives: Melissa Citro as Minnie and Jonathan Burton as Dick Johnson in La fanciulla del West (2016)
In this clip from Opera Colorado’s 2016 production of Puccini’s La fanciulla del West, Soprano Melissa Citro and tenor Jonathan Burton finally allow their feelings to emerge as it begins to snow. In”Ugh! Neve!” Minnie finally gives into Dick Johnson’s declarations of love. Johnson, fighting to reveal all to her, agrees to stay the night and escape the snow outside.
Citro was set to return to the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in May of 2020 for Puccini’s Tosca, before it was cancelled due to COVID-19.
