David Belasco’s melodrama The Girl of the Golden West (1905), adapted into a well-known opera by Giacomo Puccini (1910), paints a romanticized picture of life in the goldmines. This paper considers John Adams and director Peter Sellars’s opera Girls of the Golden West (2017) as a twenty-first-century rejoinder to Belasco and Puccini – a diverse, cacophonous, and bloody interpretation of the California Gold Rush.
