Gian Carlo Menotti's Amahl is part of many Americans' holiday traditions.

It turns out that more Americans have seen Amahl and the Night Visitors than any other live opera production in United States history.

Between 1951 and 1966, tens of millions watched the opera, commissioned for NBC by Gian Carlo Menotti and broadcast live by the network at Christmastime through much of the mid-20th century. Generations have since come and gone.

For many, the Nativity-based opera is a new experience—and rather easy to endure due to its modest length and English language.
