Menotti

Show Summary

Menotti is a three-part musical drama series taken from composer Gian Carlo Menotti's classic opera, The Consul. Produced by the Australian Broadcasting Company, the adaptation stars Geoffrey Rush as John and Patricia Neway as the heroine, Magda. John is a police officer on the run from corrupt city officials, and he hides in his home while things cool down. After the police almost arrest his wife Magda, he decides to flee the country. Magda anxiously waits for her husband to send a visa, so she and her son can leave the country. Local police harass her every day, and her son soon takes ill. Magda decides to see the town's mayor (Ivar Kants) to try to get an emergency visa on her own, but the Chief of Police (Peter Gwynne) intercepts her visit. Her son dies, and John returns after receiving word. The police meet John at the border with a proper exit visa for his wife, but it may be too late, as a mourning Magda becomes suicidal.
