Amahl and the Night Visitors by Gian Carlo Menotti
Produced by Manchester Community Theatre.
“Amahl and the Night Visitors” is a unique opportunity to revisit a classic Christmas Story as presented on NBC’s Hallmark Hall of Fame (1951 - 1963). It is an opera in one act (55 minutes) by Gian Carlo Menotti sung in English. The “Night Visitors” are the three Wise Men following the Christmas star toward Bethlehem. They stop to rest for the night encountering Amahl, an impoverished and crippled shepherd boy who lives with his widowed mother. Villagers bring food and dance for the Kings. Sleep is interrupted by an attempted theft but a miracle provides a joyous resolution.
