Full of delight, humor, and tenderness, Amahl and the Night Visitors is a true holiday story for the whole family. Three traveling kings, following the star to Bethlehem, stop for the night at a humble home of a shepherd boy, Amahl, and his mother. As Amahl entertains the guests, he offers his own simple gift to the Christ child and learns the miracle of true generosity.
This all-new Lyric Opera production of Menotti’s classic holiday opera utilizes newly-created puppets, designed by Kansas City’s legendary puppet master, Paul Mesner, brought to life by a team of puppeteers and live voices in a magical new setting and orchestral version, created especially for Lyric Opera.

Music/Libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti

One 47-minute act sung in English

Digital Access on sale now! Streaming begins December 15.
