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>>
