Notes & Reviews:
The yearly live telecasts of Gian Carlo Menotti's 'Amahl and the Night Visitors' were a cherished Christmas tradition throughout the 1950s. This production, staged by the composer himself and originally telecast on Christmas Day 1955, is a testament to the work's enduring power to move the heart and stir the soul. Starring Rosemary Kuhlmann as the Mother and Bill McIver as Amahl. Thomas Schippers conducts members of the Symphony of the Air. DVD also includes an exclusive 2007 interview with Kuhlmann and a performance of Christmas selections by The Columbus Boychoir.Notes & Reviews:
