Menotti: The Consul / Hickox, Bullock, Spoleto Festival

Album Summary

>Menotti, Gian C. : The Consul, opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This production of 'The Consul' was made in the summer of 1998 at the 40th Spoleto Festival under the direction of the composer. Written in 1949, the opera is full of topical subjects - the denial of freedom, bureaucracy, fear and mistrust. Menotti's music is instantly appealing, yet never merely attractive.
