Sembrich museum celebrates music of Menotti

Listen to this story
One of the highlights this summer at the Sembrich Museum in Bolton Landing is a tribute to Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti. He wrote the classic Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors and dozens of other operas. Thursday marks the centennial of Menotti's birth. He died in 2007. There's a free showing this afternoon at the museum of an early television production of Menotti's Pulitzer Prize-winning Cold War tragedy, The Consul. Todd Moe talks with Sembrich artistic director Richard Wargo about a summer filled with music and Menotti's connection to the museum.
