Amahl and the Night Visitors


Writers: Gian Carlo Menotti


The opera is in a single continuous act, without scene breaks or musical separations. (Written into the plot synopsis are cues to aid in lining up the story with the score.)

Popularly excerpted “arias” are “All that Gold” (The Mother) and “This is My Box” (King Kaspar).

A song with an asterisk (*) before the title indicates a dance number; a character listed in a song with an asterisk (*) by the character's name indicates that the character exclusively serves as a dancer in this song, which is sung by other characters.
