Puccini's romantic operatic epic of the Wild West: Love ultimately prevails over gunslingers, saloons, gambling, outlaws, and bloody shootouts in the mountains of Sierra Madre. The Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings an enthralling Minnie. She notes: ‘If you want to know who I’m most like off stage, it’s probably Minnie.’ (The Telegraph, 2010) In the role of outlaw Dick Johnson, the famous tenor Jonas Kaufmann.
