Amahl and the Night Visitors by Menotti is a much-loved opera for the whole family, which since its premiere in 1951 has become a Christmas classic around the world.

Amahl, a poor widow’s son, who can only walk with the help of a crutch, is amazed one evening to see a huge star hovering over their house. Three strangers arrive and seek shelter for the night. This is the beginning of a night filled with wonders for Amahl and his mother.

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a traditional Christmas tale with familiar references to our cultural heritage. It's the story of the Three Kings in search of Baby Jesus, but with a twist. Here, the main character is the poor and disabled young boy Amahl, who lives with his mother.
