Purchase Opera: Amahl and the Night Visitors

Jacque Trussel, Director

Hugh Murphy, Music Director and Conductor

Purchase Symphony Orchestra


Description: 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 disabled boy named Amahl, who, along with his widowed mother live in poverty among the shepherds near Bethlehem. One night, three kings stop for shelter at their crude and humble dwelling. They have traveled from far away following a wondrous star and bring with them treasures and gifts as homage for a child, born to be King. As the story unfolds, the true miracle and meaning of life is revealed, a gift far greater than gold.
