Gian Carlo Menotti was a prolific 20th century Italian-American composer and librettist who won the Pulitzer Prize twice, achieved numerous honors throughout his lifetime, and founded the Spoleto Festival (Festival of Two Worlds) in Spoleto, Italy and Charleston, SC. His one-act opera, "The Old Maid and the Thief," premiered in 1939 as a "radio opera," which he later recreated as a staged work. His work about a creepy seance, "The Medium," is a short two-act opera, commissioned by Columbia University and premiered there in 1946. Both operas have memorable haunting melodies and deal with a common theme of powerful women and their influence, often negative, on the lives of others.
