Main Street Opera Theatre is proud to present Amahl and the Night Visitors, one of the most popular American operas by Gian Carlo Menotti, on Saturday, November 24, 2012 for two performances at The Village Theatre at Cherry Hill. This production promises to be one of the highlights of the holiday season.
Amahl and the Night Visitors is a timeless story of the power of faith and the meaning of love. The one-act opera tells the story of Amahl, a poor crippled boy, who lives with his mother in a village somewhere on the road to Bethlehem. When the Three Kings, following the star in the East, seek shelter for the night, the lives of Amahl and his mother are changed forever. Estimated running time is 50 minutes. Children over the age of five are encouraged to attend with an adult.
Commissioned by NBC in 1951, and first performed at Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center, Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors has become an annual holiday tradition enjoyed by children and families around the world.
