“The work’s appeal is obvious. Menotti’s music is attractive and unfailingly lyrical.” — New York Times

Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, the first opera written for television, enjoys more than 500 performances annually around the world. Here, the Chicago Symphony Chorus joins forces with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Chorus to record this iconic holiday work. Menotti’s My Christmas receives its world premiere recording on the latter half of the album.
