The famed Italian composer Giacomo Puccini reportedly believed this opera to be his best work. Now spun in a new direction, this retelling of Girl of The Golden West places the story’s heroine, Millie, in the middle of an 1850s Gold Rush town—right here in Colorado. Fun-loving, saloon-owning Millie, played by soprano Melissa Citro, still falls for a mysterious newcomer, and antics (including poker games, the visits from the Pony Express, and plenty of tussles with bandits) ensue. Sat, Tue, Fri 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m.
