A sonic tour of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, led by Concertmaster and soloist Christina Mok, precedes the arrival of a rare gem for the holiday season, a fully staged one-act opera, Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors. Don’t miss this timeless and poignant family holiday event directed for the stage by Walt deFaria.
Amahl and the Night Visitors
As directed by Walt deFaria
A timeless story of the three magi en route to Bethlehem whom, weary after walking many miles, come upon a modest hut inhabited by a poor woman and her son, Amahl, a crippled boy. The magi relate to Amahl and his mother the reason for their journey: to visit a very special baby who will bring peace to the world. Intrigued, Amahl finds a way to provide a generous gift for the child that will change their lives forever.
With outstanding performances by Michelle Rice and Angelique Zuluaga, this opera’s heart-warming story and Christmastime appeal makes Amahl an endearing holiday experience.
*Note: The performance at Sherwood Hall in Salinas will be held on Thursday, November 21, which is a variation from our usual concert schedule.
