Opera Colorado Archives: Melissa Citro as Minnie in La fanciulla del West (2016)
This excerpt from the Opera Colorado Archives was chosen by our General & Artistic Director Greg Carpenter. We are going back to 2016’s performance of La fanciulla del West. In this clip, soprano Melissa Citro’s rendition of “Ti voglio bene, Minnie” tears at the heart as Minnie denies the advances of Sheriff Jack Rance and sings about waiting for the right man and her fight for true love.
Melissa Citro is set to return to the Ellie Caulkins Opera House this fall in the title role of Puccini’s Tosca. Single tickets are on sale now for this high-stakes thriller>>

I started giving her voice lessons when she was twelve, but she looked and sounded like she was at least 18! She’s come a long way since then! I hope Opera Colorado will bring her back in Tosca when all of this is over.
Thank you ,for sharing this . We hope to see her in Denver again . We were so looking forward to a Tosca .
I still remember you with your guitar as a young girl at St Peters. ❤️😊
It was a pleasure to be in this production with Melissa. We have known each other for 22 years, and she has always been a great singer and a wonderful colleague. I am so happy to see her continued success.
