Help, Help the Globolinks, by Carl Menotti ???

This is intended to be a children’s opera, written by the same person who wrote Amahl and the Night Visitors. This story is about a space invasion by aliens, who can only be destroyed by playing musical instruments. The message of the opera is quite clear. The story was somewhat akin to Mars Attacks! without Jack Nicholson. The opera is short and thus bearable, the story line a touch contrived, the music clearly 20th century though in good taste. I’ll need to try the opera on a child someday to see if it works.
