Opus Concert Theatre proudly presents Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl & the Night Visitors. A poor widow and her young disabled son, Amahl, are on the verge of starvation, when a knock at the door reveals three kings, each bearing gifts as they follow the star in the East. When Amahl and his mother learn the purpose of their journey, lives are changed forever. Sung in English, this beautiful one-act opera will warm your heart.

Performed in English with Chamber Orchestra.
