“The Old Maid and the Thief” is coming to the airwaves today at NOON!
Wondering what to do this weekend now that you’re stuffed with turkey and gravy (and whatever root vegetable is all the rage…) ?
Gather the family around the radio today at NOON for a pastime as old-fashioned as Black Friday!
Tune in to All Classical 89.9 wherever you are from the Cascades to the Coast and beyond for OTO’s production of The Old Maid and the Thief, recorded live this past October from the Mission Theater stage. Menotti’s witty and poignant one-act radio opera about gossip, temptation, jealousy (and other small-town pastimes) is sure to entertain the whole family! And don’t worry: if you’re a football fan, we’ve calibrated our performance to sync up exactly with today’s Civil War game– it’s just like “Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Wizard of Oz!” Enjoy!
