Marietta College's Edward E. MacTaggart Department of Music is conducting an Opera Workshop performance of "The Old Maid and the Thief",  a one-act opera in English that was composed by Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti. The storylines weaves a twisted tale of evil womanly power and morals.
 
This musical work was originally written to be a radio opera commissioned by NBC back in 1939, which received rave reviews by music critics. After the success of the radio performance, Menotti adapted the opera to be performed on the stage first performed in 1941 and is still performed by professional opera companies today.
 
The performance will be held on Tuesday, November 14th in the Herman Fine Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. The opera, which is under the direction of Instructor of Voice and Opera Dr. Amy Yekel is free and open to the public.
