Amahl and the Night Visitors
Composer:Gian Carlo Menotti
Librettist:Gian Carlo Menotti
Synopsis
In this warm and compassionate story, Gian Carlo Menotti has captured the essential spirit of Christmas.

The story tells of the night the Three Kings, following the star to Bethlehem, stop for shelter at the home of Amahl, a poor, crippled shepard boy who lives with his widowed mother. Inspired by the Wise Men's tale of a kingdom "built on love alone," Amahl offers his own simple gift to the Christ Child. And then a miracle happens. . .
