New Jersey Opera Theater presents Gian Carlo Menotti’s beloved one act opera sung in English. This 45-minute performance is the perfect introduction to the opera for children and newcomers but is sure to be enjoyed by all!
Amahl and his mother are dazzled by the three kings on the way to Bethlehem on the first Christmas Eve. Amahl’s mother welcomes the royal sojourners who rest in the small, bare house where love and faith work miracles during the night.
Amahl and the Night Visitors was commissioned by NBC and first performed by the NBC Opera Theatre on December 24, 1951, in New York City at NBC Studios. It was the first opera specifically composed for television in the United States.
Come witness a Christmas miracle!
