2017-18 Concert Season


Amahl & the Night Visitors

Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors is a one-act opera about a boy and his mother, three kings, and a night filled with miracles that can only occur when selfless hearts are moved. As the Kings rest from their travels in the home of a widow and her crippled son, a delightful tale of compassion and generosity unfolds. Stunning music performed by soloists, chorus and orchestra, dancing, laughter, and an inspiring story will delight audiences of all ages.
