A work of an American playwright, impresario, director and theatrical producer David Belasco. “The Girl of the Golden West”, published in 1905, is a frontier romance, a popular western drama, telling


a story of the Polka Saloon owner. Later the play was made into a popular opera by Puccini. Belasco is considered to be the author of nearly 400 plays, most of them written or adapted by himself; but his writing, in a time when lbsen, Strindberg, and Chekhov were introducing realism, remained filled with sensational melodrama or maudlin sentiment.
