The old maid and the thief
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.
The Chamber Hall of the Auditorio de Tenerife is transformed into a 1940s radio station to host this one-act opera created specifically for the American NBC airwaves. With musical direction and piano by Javier Lanis and stage direction and set design by Alicia Peraza, the singers Silvia Zorita, Fernando Campero, Candelaria González and Estefanía Perdomo, with the actors Alcides Cairós and Joel Hernández, and the radio show manager Luis López Tejedor, will recreate this amusing comedy whose success on the radio catapulted it to the stage.
