D’Angelo Opera Theatre: The Old Maid and the Thief
Friday November 15, 2019 - 7:00 pm
Walker Recital Hall
The D’Angelo Opera Theatre presents the one-act opera The Old Maid and the Thief for one performance only on Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall. Gian Carlo Menotti wrote the opera in 1939 to be performed on the radio, fashioning it as a cautionary tale about twisted human morals: “The devil couldn’t do what a woman can – make a thief of an honest man!” The company will use a radio station as a backdrop, with sound effects created using wash boards, crumpled paper, and other found objects. Louisa Jonason directs. Tickets are $6 for adults, $3 for Mercyhurst students and youths. Visit miac.mercyhurst.edu or call the box office at 814-824-3000.
