In 2016, Opera North will once again present the beloved children’s opera Amahl and the Night Visitors. One of the most popular operas of all time, Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the story of how a crippled young shepherd boy’s life changes forever when he sees an amazing star “as big as a window.” When three foreign kings (who are following the star in their search for a wondrous child) encounter Amahl and his mother, the result is a timeless and inspiring message of how faith, charity, unselfish love, and good deeds can work miracles.
In addition to public performances, students and educators are invited to attend a free performance on Friday, December 16th at 10:00 AM. Bus scholarships are also available to schools unable to pay for transportation. Teachers receive study guides before the performances to help introduce their students to opera.
