La Fanciulla del West will prima on the evening of November 19th at the Opera Monte Carlo for a run of three performances. This is the production from the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and will star COMMANDOpera favourite Alberto Gazale as Jack Rance. Mr. Zoran Todorovich is Dick Johnson, and Miss Meagan Miller is Minnie. Global readers will be also interested to know the Russian Basso Grigory Soloviov will appear in the minor role of Larkens. One notes this for those who are aware that vocal talent for seasons are booked years in advance. Mr. Soloviov, whose career is on the ascendant accepted the engagement long ago, and though more prestigious roles in two leading houses were offered for their season opening productions, the artist refused out of loyalty to the Opera Monte Carlo (who has engaged his services each season for the past six years). Maestro Pinchas Steinberg is on the podium.
