Opera: Menotti2 - The Old Maid and the Thief & Amelia al ballo

Sunday, January 26, 2020

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Old Maid and the Thief Amelia Goes to the Ball
Music and librettos by Gian Carlo Menotti
Aidan Smerud, Stage Director
Alejandro Basulto, Conductor

Two delightful, high-spirited one-act comedies! In Amelia, a woman prepares to go out on the town, but first has to deal with both her jealous husband and her overly passionate lover. In The Old Maid and the Thief, a spinster takes in a handsome drifter who steals more than just her money. Boasting many memorable and beautiful arias by a master craftsman, these operas just may steal your heart too.

Sung in the original English and Italian with projected translation over the stage.
