Amahl and the Night Visitors (12/24 @ 12pm)


This family-friendly opera, composed by Gian Carlo Menotti tells the story of three traveling kings, a weary mother and a boy full of wonder who come together through small acts of kindness. Presented by Nashville Opera.

The opera was composed Menotti for NBC's Television Opera Theatre. Its premiere fetched quite likely the largest audience an opera has very had, as over half the televisions in the USA tuned in.

In this special from Nashville Classical Radio, Nashville Opera brings the magic of a visit from the three kings back to broadcast. Intermission features an interview with Kirk Jordan, who played the title role on NBC in the 1960s.
