Composer and lyricist Gian Carlo Menotti offers a heartwarming extension of the traditional story surrounding the nativity of Jesus. Young Amahl has a disabled leg and can no longer herd sheep to support himself and his mother. Although the family’s financial plight doesn’t dampen Amahl’s spirits or his imagination, his mother secretly worries they will soon have to beg for a living. But their fortunes could change when three royal visitors appear unexpectedly at their door one night, seeking shelter on their journey to locate a newborn king. “The singing, dancing, and beautifully complex music in this show will transport audiences to another place and time, filling them with the spirit of Christmas,” says director Bevan Keating.
