Choreographed by Don Schwennesen, this is the world premier of his new ballet, Girl of the Golden West, loosely based on the opera by Puccini. There are many versions of the story Girl of the Golden West, from two operas to several plays and four movies. This is the first time the story has been transformed into a ballet. Set to new music, the play tells the story of several characters in a small California mining town during the Gold Rush. The story has many references to Sacramento during the era, including the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy in the 1850s.
