SF: Adams’ new opera mines Gold Rush for riches

November 21, 2017

With a nod to Puccini, John Adams’ world premiere opera, at the San Francisco Opera Nov. 21-Dec. 10, is called Girls of the Golden West. Peter Sellars’ libretto is “sourced from historical writings,” and focuses on the emotional and psychological experience of characters hoping to strike it rich in the California Gold Rush.
