Tuesday, November 26, 7pm
Friday, November 29, 8pm

Music by Gaetano Donizetti
Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

Please note: There will be a gun shot in the show.

Running time is approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Donizetti's joyful music comes alive in this Hollywood version of the American West complete with bubble baths, bar girls and a Mariachi band.
