Menotti in 2000 Gian Carlo Menotti (; July 7, 1911 – February 1, 2007) 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.

He won a Pulitzer Prize twice, for ''The Consul'' (1950) and for ''The Saint of Bleecker Street'' (1955). He founded the noted ''Festival dei Due Mondi'' (Festival of the Two Worlds) in Spoleto in 1958 and its American counterpart, Spoleto Festival USA, in 1977. In 1986 he commenced a Melbourne Spoleto Festival in Australia, but he withdrew after three years.

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 East Lothian, Scotland. Provided by Wikipedia
