Composer and lyricist Gian Carlo Menotti offers a heartwarming extension of the traditional story surrounding the nativity of Jesus. Young Amahl has a disabled leg and can no longer herd sheep to support himself and his mother. Although the family’s financial plight doesn’t dampen Amahl’s spirits or his imagination, his mother secretly worries they will soon have to beg for a living. But their fortunes could change when three royal visitors appear unexpectedly at their door one night, seeking shelter on their journey to locate a newborn king.
The double cast features Ella Tappe and Isabella Nguyen as Amahl; Shannon Rookey and Satia Spencer as The Mother; Matthew Tatus, Luke Angelo, Jordan Murdock, Juan Garcia, and Robert Holden as the traveling kings; and Chris Straw as The Page. Amahl and the Night Visitors is directed and conducted by Bevan Keating.
