Opportunity Makes The Thief

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.

Sung in English.
