Photo Flash: First Look at Rossini's LA GAZZA LADRA
ROSSINI'S LA GAZZA LADRA (The Thieving Magpie) is sung entirely in English with a full chorus and orchestra. BxO's tradition of supplying the borough with lavish musical fare as well as intimate engrossing concerts and educational programming has endured thanks to the Spierman family since 1967.
The Bronx Opera invites you to the opening of The Thieving Magpie (Rossini's La gazza ladra), the story of a servant girl unwittingly embroiled in intrigue because of her romance with a young soldier. The simple theft of a silver spoon brings her in contact with the soldier's unscrupulous mother and a lecherous politician who must never know the REAL identity of the servant girl's father. Will this ordeal bring her to her true love... or her own execution?
