OPPORTUNITY MAKES THE THIEF

 

 


 

A Musical Comedy from 1812.

An early comic opera by Gioachino Rossini. An accidental switch of two suitcases inspires a rogue to assume a new identity. Turmoil ensues when both the imposter and the original 
show up at the same doorstep of a young woman.

Sung in English.

These performances mark the New York premiere of the English-language transalation by Mark Herman and Ronnie Apter. Herman & Apter’s translations of operas, operettas, and choral works have been performed in the United States, Canada, England, and Scotland.  Their work has been called "highly sing-able" in The New York Times, "lively" in The London Times, and "remarkably deft" in The Village Voice.  Many of their poetry translations have appeared in literary magazines.  They are currently writing a book on Translating for Singing to be published in England in 2015.
