The Old Maid and the Thief

Date: Saturday, March 10, 2018
Time: 8:00 PM
Building: Dixon Hall, Recital Hall
Location: uptown campus

For the first time in over thirty years, the Newcomb Department of Music will be presenting a fully-staged student opera. In March, undergraduates from the department will be performing in a production of The Old Maid and the Thief by Gian Carlo Menotti. The project is a collaborative effort of students and faculty from the Newcomb Department of Music and Newcomb Department of Theatre and Dance. 


The Newcomb Department of Music has a long history of student opera that was a frequent offering through the 1980s when late Tulane professor Frank Monachino inaugurated the Downman Performance Series. The series presented notable works such as Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. More recent Tulane operetta productions include Summer Lyric Theatre’s productions of The Pirates of Penzance (2003) and The Mikado (2004), and a concert version of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (2004), all of which included undergraduate, amateur, and professional performers. The Old Maid and the Thief, last performed at Tulane in 1960, will be a return to the operatic genre with all roles performed by Tulane students. This production is made possible through a generous teaching grant from the Newcomb College Institute and gifts by Music Department alumni.

The mission of the Music Department at Tulane University is to train and inspire aspiring professionals as well as enthusiasts for lifelong involvement in the various facets of music. This instruction is offered by talented performers, historians, ethnomusicologists, theorists, composers and technologists, who honor and build upon the outstanding music tradition of the department. By giving freely of these strengths and resources, and offering educational guidance and enriching performances on and off campus, the influence of the department resonates in the greater New Orleans community. Rooted in the uniquely dynamic musical past and present of the city, it seeks to contribute to this cultural life, while fostering an understanding of the broader practice of music-making worldwide. ###
