Here is a new and wonderful film of Menotti's beautiful opera. (Though I could be wrong, it might actually suck. I apparently have very bad taste in filmed theater.) It was filmed back in 1996 during the Spoleto Festival from a staged production for the festival which was directed by the composer. For some reason it was never released until 2020. The music and singers were all singing live, including the orchestra. It is posted on Vimeo.
