Menotti: The Old Maid and the Thief / Victoria Bond, et al

Album Summary

>Menotti, Gian C. : The Old Maid and the Thief, opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Even for those of a "certain age" (i.e., baby-boomers) who never followed classical music, there is the indelible memory of "Amahl and the Night Visitors," Menotti’s warm, wonderful Christmas opera, one of the first commissioned for television’s early days. Menotti’s delicate, tuneful music was almost a modern counterpart to the music of Rossini, full of high spirits, color and equal amounts of drama. This first recording of "The Old Maid and The Thief" in nearly 40 years is a wonderful memorial for the composer who died earlier this year.
