La Fanciulla del West Frosted Shot Glass Set (Set of 2)

Exclusive to the Met Opera Shop, this handsome set of two frosted shot glasses features a pair of images: one of the legendary Enrico Caruso as Dick Johnson in the Met’s 1910 premiere of Giacomo Puccini’s opera, La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the West). The other shot glass depicts the brilliant Renata Tebaldi delivering a breathtaking performance as Minnie in the 1970 production at the Metropolitan Opera.

They are inspired by the Polka Saloon frequented by carousing California Gold Rush miners. It is here where the central plot of the opera unfolds.

The Met Opera logo is printed on the back of each shot glass. Packaged in a clear acetate container as a set of two. Ideal for gift giving.

La Fanciulla del West

Giacomo Puccini’s “American” opera, La Fanciulla del West, made its glamorous and much-publicized world premier in 1910 at the Met with the composer seated in the audience.

This romantic epic of the Wild West takes place in the mountains of California during the Gold Rush between 1849-1850 in a fictional setting, which features a combination of mythic and gritty realistic elements.

Most of the action in this three-act opera centers around the Polka Saloon where miners gather to drink, sing and play cards. It is there that Sherriff Jack Rance confesses his love to the gun-slinging heroine, Minnie— “Minnie, della mia casa” —but she spurns him, determined to win the man she loves, Dick Johnson. She does, but learns later he is the outlaw bandit being hunted. In the end, thanks to the mercy given by the miners, the couple rides away to start a new life together.

La Fanciulla del West was commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera with Met stars Enrico Caruso and Emmy Destinn for whom Puccini created the leading roles of Dick Johnson and Minnie.
