DVOC will present Gian Carlo Menotti's delightful holiday classic that has been charming audiences since 1951! This performance very fittingly takes place on the Feast of the Three Kings, or Epiphany, bringing a close to the Christmas season.
The opera's story is Menotti's notion of what might have happened in Bethlehem during the three kings' journey as they followed the Christmas star. Amahl, a crippled shepherd boy, and his mother entertain three kings who are journeying to deliver precious gifts to a miraculous and mysterious child. During their short stay with the family, the visitors impart their wisdom to the boy and his mother, and a miracle results.
