Overview

Amahl and the Night Visitors

This 1954 telecast of Gian Carlo Menotti's one-act opera starring Rosemary Kuhlman, Leon Lishner and Bill McIver is not only a heartwarming holiday favorite, but holds the distinction of being the first opera commissioned for television. ~ Violet LeVoit

I had been trying to locate this filmed tv show for ages! I finally tried Barnes and Noble and ordered it immediately. It is a touching story about a boy and mother of little means and three men who are following the star on Christmas Eve. The music is beautiful - haunting, loving, dramatic, unforgettable. I first heard it in the first tv production of the operetta and watched it thereafter for nearly a decade. For some reason they didn't continue showing it on tv.
