Opera & Mass Communications
Friday, December 8, 12 Noon to 2:00 pm
The Enzian Theater, Maitland
Join us for lunch and a rare private screening of the 1955 live TV broadcast of Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, followed by a presentation on the Impact of Mass Media on Opera, a perfect prelude to Opera Orlando’s December performances of Amahl. You may be surprised to know that Amahl and the Night Visitors has been seen by more Americans than any other opera!
Beginning on Christmas Eve, 1951, and every year forward through 1963, Menotti’s masterpiece was aired live on NBC
Television. We invite you to return to a time when network television stations championed the arts and high culture.
