BU Music presents an enduring Christmas favorite

Binghamton University Music Department presents two Sunday matinees of Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors.  Originally written for television, Menotti wrote it so that it could be easily staged in a theatre.  Stage Director Steven Nanni, Music Director Willie Waters, and Henry Wager, the boy soprano singing the title character, talk about why this short opera is so beloved. http://wskg.org/audio/amahl2015.mp3
