Opera de Tenerife presents 'The old maid and the thief' by Gian Carlo Menotti.


This one-act opera was specifically created by Gian Carlo Menotti for performances on the radio. The opera was premièred in 1939 on American NBC radio. The success of the opera helped the music and libretto composer to adapt it, so it could be performed on the stage. Four voices play the main roles in this twisted ethical tale.
