This has stayed with me for 44 years
2 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a kid when this aired on NBC. It was haunting, funny and surreal. It completely changed my thinking about opera. I would love to have a copy of it. It was tailored to the medium of television. My favorite scene--the chorus of frolicking hotel guests in the swimming pool, whose energy went down the drain when someone pulled the plug and returned when the pool was refilled--could not have been staged properly in an opera house.

Other images that have stayed with me of staircases and corridors leading nowhere and people unable to connect with each other, have made frequent guest appearances in my dreams. I think that's a testament to the primal connections Menotti and his collaborators made with the audience. It was stunning, and ultimately probably too weird for TV.
