Celebrate the Season with Gian Carlo Menotti's classic holiday opera


Based on Italian folk tales of the Nativity and Epiphany, Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors is a retelling of the story of the Magi from the point of view of a young shepherd named Amahl, who lives in poverty with his widowed mother near Bethlehem. They receive visitors, three kings, who seek shelter on their journey to bring gifts to a newborn child. And what happens next? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out! A vivid and accessible tale originally created for television, Amahl and the Night Visitors is truly an opera for all!

In the spirit of the holiday season, this production is presented unticketed and free of charge with 100% of donations received supporting The City Mission's Laura's Home Women's Crisis Center.
