COC March Break: The Old Maid and the Thief
Artists of the COC's Community Partnerships & Programs Team
Members from the COC’s roster of Teaching Artists will be taking the stage to lead an interactive workshop inspired by Gian Carlo Menotti’s 1939 opera The Old Maid and the Thief. Navigating through dramaturgy, set design, and a few of its most famous arias, this workshop will provide an educational exploration of the well-loved radio opera—while also experiencing the various artistic components involved in this production.
