Song of the Day: September 20

September 20:  Laughing at love and fate… “Minnie, dalla mia casa” from La fanciulla del West  (The Girl of the West) an opera by Giacomo Puccini to a libretto by Guelfo Civinini and Carlo Zangarini based on the 1905 play The Girl of the Golden West by David Belasco. The aria is sung here by Claudio Sgura.  Minnie was Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s favorite opera character (as per OperaNews.com): “No victim she, Minnie fends for herself, keeps the miners in tow and saves her man.”  SPOTIFY
