Description
Gian Carlo Menotti (* 7. July 1911 in Cadegliano-Viconago, Lombardei; † 1. February 2007 in Monte Carlo) was an Italian-American composer and librettist. Although he often referred to himself as an American composer, he kept his Italian citizenship. He wrote the classic Christmas opera Amahl and the Night Visitors, along with over two dozen other operas intended to appeal to popular taste.



Menotti died on February 1, 2007, at the age of 95 in a hospital in Monte Carlo, Monaco, where he had a home. He was buried in Yester Kirk, Gifford, East Lothian, Scotland.
