L’occasione fa il ladro

by Gioachino Rossini

L'occasione fa il ladro

L’occasione fa il ladro is a one-act opera by Rossini. Involving an arranged marriage, swapped identities, and a luggage mix-up, it is hilarious and light-hearted.

We are casting a Bass/Bass-Baritone for either the role of Don Parmenione or Martino. All other roles have already been cast. We are holding auditions next week, on Thursday, 11/10, from 7-8 pm and Friday, 11/11, from 5-5:45 pm. We will ask auditionees to sing 2-3 minutes of a song of your choice. Sign up below, and see more audition guideliness and resources as well.
