Where: The Paramount
Cost: $45 / $37 / $27 / $16.50 Student / $12 Youth
Ash Lawn Opera’s timeless holiday production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors returns for a fourth year to The Paramount Theater on December 12. A wonderful tradition for the whole family, this inspirational hour-long opera has enchanted audiences for over 60 years.
Amahl, a young disabled shepherd, and his mother are on the brink of destitution when three kings appear at their door and ask to stay the night before they continue their long journey. Their arrival transforms the pair’s lives in ways they could never have imagined. Performed in English by singers from the most prestigious opera companies in the country, Amahl is the perfect way to introduce music lovers of all ages to opera.
