Menotti: Amahl

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The reception for the first television broadcast of Menotti's opera Amahl and the Night Visitors (also available in an acclaimed modern recording on Naxos 8.669019) was overwhelming: an estimated five million viewers, the NBC switchboard jammed with congratulatory calls and an unprecedented front-page review in The New York Times. Quickly recorded for RCA Victor, the album became a best-seller and the opera remains a Christmas evergreen, brimming with memorable tunes for both soloists and chorus. Set in 17th-century Venice, Menotti's ballet Sebastian, the concert suite from which is heard here, was applauded by The New York Times as an 'unblushing melodrama... brilliantly effective'.
