Notes & Reviews:
"The opera was filmed in Italy, although the plot was originally set in the US, and the change of venue adds texture and atmosphere to the tale. Marie Powers, who performed Madame Flora on Broadway to great acclaim, is superbly focused here, creating the impression of deep spiritual unrest in a role that can often seem merely hysterical... This film stands as one of Menotti's most impressive achievements. In it, words, music, and visual images seem truly unified." - GramophoneNotes & Reviews:
