    If anyone knows where I can pick up a copy of the harp part for “Amahl and the Night Visitors”, I’d greatly appreciate it! I’m hoping to produce it this holiday with my 8 year-old son as Amahl. Thanks!

    I don’t know about the harp part, but somewhere, once upon a time, I had the score for all the instruments.

    Thanks for the help and great information. It will save a lot of searching around when show time comes! Do you know if one can customize parts, such as the two pianos and the harp part only? Thanks again!

    I found my Amahl this weekend, and what I have is just the Intro, March and Shepherd’s Dance, not the whole thing.

    Thanks for looking! From the TV introduction of the broadcast of Amahl, Menotti seeemed like a wonderful person. I performed the part of Toby in “The Medium” in my younger days– I loved telling people I was a mute in an opera!

    Steven,

    I played AMAHL a few years ago and just remember that it was no big deal.

    If you elect to use Menotti’s original 2-piano score (which is great, by the way!) Schirmer will also let you rent up to six books from the regular full chamber orchestration, and then you can simply “let go” of some of the 2-piano parts, and let those six instruments individual colors come thru. I once used the 2-piano version, and augmented it with the flute, oboe, clarinet, violin, cello and harp books, to make an 8-piece combo.
