The upcoming San Francisco Opera production 
(http://sfopera.com/o/291.asp) of Puccini’s /La fanciulla del West/, aka 
/Girl of the Golden West,/ aka "Puccini's American opera," returning 
here after an absence of 31 years, is the epitome of "Italian-American."

Puccini's correspondence, says stage director Lorenzo Mariani, referred 
to the opera as "The Girl," in English. But that’s the least of it, as 
the work is coming to the country’s most Italian-American opera company.

San Francisco Opera itself was created in 1923 by Gaetano Merola and an 
all-Italian board of directors and contributors. And now we have 
Mariani, artistic director of Palermo’s Teatro Massimo, born in New York 
City’s Little Italy (where his father ran the Asti Restaurant, famed for 
both food and opera, on 11th Street), and a Harvard graduate. <snip>
