Amahl and the Night Visitors, one of the most popular operas of all time, tells the story of a miraculous encounter between Amahl, a boy with a lame leg, and the Three Kings. The moving tale is a timeless and inspiring message of how faith, charity, unselfish love, and good deeds can work miracles. This family-friendly holiday classic is a one-act, 45-minute opera, sung in English, and performed with a chamber orchestra and professional soloists.
