OPERA IN CINEMA

   Puccini’s operatic take on the Wild West is sprinkled with Hollywood glitz in this splashy production from the Netherlands Opera. "The Girl of the Golden West" (La Fanciulla del West) stars blonde bombshell soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as the cowgirl Minnie. Nikolaus Lehnhoff’s Hollywood-style production updates this Wild West story to the capitalist culture of Wall Street, reflecting Puccini’s innovatory spirit. In a new angle on the age-old love triangle theme, corrupt Sheriff Jack Rance (Lucio Gallo) and charismatic criminal Dick Johnson (Zoran Todorovich) vie for the love of glamorous blonde and devout Christian Minnie, finding her way in a man’s world. Carlo Rizzi conducts the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. Noon. Additional performance on Jan. 17. Bill Cosford Cinema at the University of Miami, 1111 Memorial Drive, Coral Gables. $18-$22.
