La fanciulla del West (Jim Larkens)
Opera Colorado
Denver, CO

Come enjoy this all-new production of Puccini's, The Girl of the Golden West.  The composer, himself, even declared "Fanciulla" his best opera. This production marks Gerbrandt's debut with Opera Colorado in the role of Jim Larkens.  This production is set in a mining camp in  the state of Colorado during the gold rush (1849-50).  Images of the Rocky Mountains will become a powerful backdrop for the wild and tempestuous story!
