AN INSPIRATIONAL EVENING FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!
in the Great Hall at St. David the King
Saturday, December 16, 2023
Children 12 and under are free (but they do need tickets)
Now in its 35th Anniversary Season, Boheme Opera NJ brings opera to the community with Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, an uplifting, inspirational story of two children joined by faith on the eve of the Nativity.
A poor mother and her disabled son, Amahl, who has a penchant for tall tales, open their humble home to the Three Kings on their westward, star-guided quest. What begins as a respite on the road to Bethlehem becomes a journey of learning, love and healing. Enjoy a memorable family experience that will bring you holiday warmth and joy.
Amahl and the Night Visitors made television history when it was broadcast live on NBC on December 24, 1951 – the first opera commissioned and written for television and the debut of Hallmark Hall of Fame.
