Amahl and the Night Visitors
A one-act Opera in English by Gian Carlo Menotti
Directed by Marquita Lister

Amahl and the Night Visitors is an opera in one act by Gian Carlo Menotti with an  original English libretto by the composer.   Menotti wrote Amahl with the stage in mind, even though it was intended for television broadcast.   It was commissioned by NBC [television] and first performed on December 24, 1951 in New York City, at NBC in Rockefeller Center, where it was broadcast live on television as the debut production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame. It was the first opera specifically composed for television in America. The opera is now a popular Christmas classic.

The opera is set in Bethlehem, in the first century, just after the birth of Christ.  The story begins when the very modest home shared by Amahl -- a physically-challenged boy -- and his mother is visited by three splendidly-dressed kings who need to rest, as they in the midst of a long journey to visit a wondrous child . . .
