Interesting take on the ending. I've often thought that the narrative we don't see, between Acts II and III, would be compelling. And how do Minnie and Ramerrez negotiate their precarious future? Can he just walk away from the banditi da strada without consequences? I'm sure Minnie would love tutoring the small siblings to prepare them for education and respectability, but there's plenty of room for conflict and danger.

Audiences have matured; the operas haven't. "Show Boat" may be entry-level when it comes to music, but as a work of drama, it makes "Girl of the Golden West" feel like Disney entertainment.
