Trivia

This was the first production of "Amahl" to be videotaped. Composer-librettist Gian Carlo Menotti could not attend the taping because of prior commitments, and was furious when he learned that they had proceeded without him being present. He disapproved of the new production, and after the 1965 repeat of it, refused to allow it to be shown again. As of 1965, no one has seen this production of "Amahl and the Night Visitors". However, there was a record album made with the cast of the 1963 production. See more »

The story of a shepherd boy who meets the three Kings and the Christ child.
17 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful Christmas program I would look forward to seeing every year around Christmas. I have been trying to get a copy of the 1950's or 1960's version so I could watch it with my children and family. I wish I could see this again. I really don't watch any of the Christmas specials that are put on TV anymore because most are so shallow. We as a family pull out the classic movies like its a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, and Christmas Carol and watch them instead. I liked the show as a boy because the music was great and the lyrics were fun if not even funny. It told the story of the birth of Christ from a young shepherd boys view and created in me a sense of wonderment. The singing and music was also very could and entertaining.
