Composed for CBS television in 1951, Amahl and the Night Visitors’ heartwarming tale became an instant Christmas classic. Join Shakespeare Opera Theatre’s Orchestra and Singers as we present this meaningful story of overcoming hardship, seeking redemption, and the true meaning of Christmas. The determination of three wise men from the East, a young boy, and his mother, make this one act opera a thoughtful treat for the entire family. Christmas treats and crafts featuring the three wise men are provided for kids an hour before each Saturday performance.

Performance time 55 minutes, no intermission
