Gian Carlo Menotti
The first opera written for television, 'Amahl and the Night Visitors' has become the most frequently performed opera of all time, with over five hundred performances annually across the world. Menotti's take on the Christmas story focuses on Amahl, a young handicapped boy, and his mother, who are visited by three Kings -- Balthazar, Melchior, and Kaspar -- who are on their way to find Jesus. The Kings stay the night, during which Amahl's mother tries to steal some of the Kings' gold and is caught in the act. Melchior suggests that she keep the gold, because the child they are visiting will rule his kingdom with love, not riches. Amahl's mother gives back the gold, wishing she had something to give of her own. Amahl offers his crutch as a gift and suddenly is able to walk.

Amahl and the Night Visitors is an opera in one act by Gian Carlo Menotti with an original English libretto by the composer. It was the first opera specifically composed for television in America. Menotti was commissioned by Peter Herman Adler , director of NBC 's new opera programming, to write the first opera for television. As the airdate neared, Menotti had yet to finish the score. The singers had little time to rehearse, and received the final passages of the score just days before the broadcast. The composer's partner Samuel Barber was brought in to complete the orchestrations. Menotti distinctly wanted Amahl to be performed by a boy.
