One of the most popular of American operas, Menotti's work is performed throughout the country every Christmas season. At its premiere the work was the first opera ever written expressly for television, and it was replayed on NBC every year until the original video recording was lost. Chelsea Opera will proudly present this wonderful American Opera performed in its original English at St. Peter's Church in Chelsea and other locations around New York City this holiday season.
