New York Whittlesey House [McGraw Hill] 1952 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine Very Good Book Roger Duvoisin Signed By Gian-Carlo Menotti
Since its first performance on Christmas Eve, 1951, Amahl and the Night Visitors has taken its place with A Christmas Carol as a holiday classic. Peformed on every continent and in many languages, it has been seen by more people than any other opera in history. The story tells of the night the Three Kings, following the star to Bethlehem, stop for shelter at the home of Amahl, a poor, crippled shepard boy who lives with his widowed mother. Inspired by the Wise Men's tale of a kingdom "built on love alone," Amahl offers his own simple gift to the Christ Child. And then a miracle happens. . . In this warm and compassionate story, Gian Carlo Menotti has captured the essential spirit of Christmas. At its premiere, The New York Times called Amahl "rare art. . . tender and exquisite." this edition brought to life in glowing illustrationss, Amahl and the Night Visitors is a feast for the eyes and heart, one readers of all ages will want to return to again and again. Accompanying the book is a short typed note describing the difficulties obtaining Mr. Menotti's inscription. Very cool!
