THE LITTLE OPERA THEATRE OF NY Presents
OPPORTUNITY MAKES THE THIEF
By GIOACHINO ROSSINI
Libretto by LUIGI PRIVIDALI
Translated by MARK HERMAN & RONNIE APTER
Conducted by JAMES BAGWELL
Directed by PHILIP SHNEIDMAN
With A COMPANY OF TWELVE
The little OPERA theatre of ny makes a triumphant return to 59E59 with Rossini's enchanting 1812 comic opera. This is New York's opportunity to savor a glorious operatic rarity that first delighted modern audiences in 1987 at both the Rossini Festival in Italy and the Buxton Festival in the UK; and later at Opera North in Leeds in 2004. The accidental switch of two suitcases inspires a rogue to assume a new identity. Turmoil ensues when both the imposter and the original show up on the same doorstep of a young woman.

James Bagwell conducts for the first time with little OPERA theatre of ny.

Sung in English

The running time of Opportunity Makes the Thief is 75 minutes without an intermission.
