      Under the direction of Christof Loy, a new production of Puccini’s famous gold prospectors’ drama was presented last May in Frankfurt. OehmsClassics is presenting the live recording of the premiere series performed by prominent artists. The director regards the pieces as follows: “La fanciulla del West is a very grateful work if one encounters both the libretto and the music with respect. If the piece is performed ironically or broken up – as has occurred during the course of the work’s history – then the entire evening becomes pointless. One should repeatedly refer to the original play by David Belasco and imagine the effect it had as a play. Then one understands how witty and astute these characters are. Later on, we encounter exactly these characters in American films: very clever people trying to overtrump the others in trenchant dialogues as we know them from screwball comedies. It is a great joy to produce this. Through this, the characters are anything but grotesque operatic figures.”
