What’s an opera singer to do when the appeal of performing in concert halls wears thin? Why, go West, of course! And sure as shootin’, that’s what Carlotta Carusa does. Out on the prairie, she finds all the adventure she’s been craving: snarling wolves, disastrous droughts, and that no-good villain Skullneck Sam. But fear not, there’s no gun-slinger alive who’s faster to the draw than Carlotta, with her spine-tingling E above high C. And there’s nothing more satisfying than watching a feisty heroine, armed with a good melody and a heap of confidence, tame the untamable. Here’s an outrageously silly Wild West adventure sure to make any kid as happy as a tick on a hound dog!
