Burletta per musica in one act (1812)
Libretto by Luigi Prividali

'L’occasione fa il ladro' (‘Opportunity Makes a Thief’) was composed by the young Rossini in just eleven days, working alongside his librettist Luigi Prividali. The tale presents a comedy of multiple confusions in one act. Count Alberto, travelling to marry a fiancée he has yet to meet, leaves an inn with the wrong suitcase. Left holding the Count’s papers and possessions, Don Parmenione audaciously adopts Alberto’s identity intent on taking the bride for himself. Jochen Schönleber’s acclaimed production adapts Rossini’s swift and deftly plotted moral drama to give present-day relevance to Rossini’s exuberant ensemble burletta.
