Amahl and the Night Visitors

By Gian Carlo Menotti, sung in English with supertitles
Performed at McIntyre Hall

Amahl and the Night Visitors is an honored Christmas tradition that remains one of the most frequently performed operas of the 20th century. Menotti was inspired by his fond memories of the Three Kings as the legendary source of Christmas gifts during his childhood in Italy.

Amahl is a poor crippled shepherd boy living with his widowed mother. The Three Kings, who are following a star to Bethlehem, stop at their humble dwelling for shelter. The heart-warming outcome of their chance meeting demonstrates how kindness and charity can work miracles.

The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles.

December 16th, Friday at 7:30pm

Don Giovanni

By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, sung in Italian with English supertitles
Performed at McIntyre Hall

Widely regarded as one of the greatest opera ever composed, Mozart's glorious Don Giovanni is a retelling of the legend of Don Juan, the famous womanizer who refuses one last chance to repent of his philandering ways. Human and supernatural forces combine to exact a terrible punishment.

The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles.
