Amahl and the Night Visitors

Amahl and the Night Visitors     Dec 6-8 & Dec 13-15


Gian Carlo Menotti’s beloved one-act Christmas opera Amahl and the Night Visitors, will be performed in English, at NOVA Center for the Performing Arts  Dec. 6-8 & Dec 13-15, 2317 Montana Ave., Billings MT.

This one act Menotti opera, is a wonderful holiday story of Amahl, a precocious, disabled boy; his loving, care-worn mother; and the regal visitors who arrive one night and change Amahl’s life forever.

With its beautiful score and touching libretto Amahl and the Night Visitors is appealing to all ages and musical backgrounds and is an inspiring story of how faith, charity, unselfish love and good deeds can truly work miracles.
