Having addressed Tosca and Manon Lescaut Lulu Obermayer now dedicates herself to the third of Puccini’s operas, La Fanciulla del West, set during the Gold Rush in California of 1849/50. Opera meets Western film: The Girl(s) of the Golden West breaks with typical representations of gender in both genres. Instead of a lonesome cowboy, Minnie, who is a typical protagonist in neither a western nor an opera, is explored for her feminist potential. In her solo performance Lulu Obermayer inscribes herself into plot, libretto and score.
