Amahl and the Night Visitors
For winter enrichment, Holy Land Dance recommends attending the Mason Opera’s production of Amahl and the Night Visitors. This operetta focuses on the Magi of the Christmas story, who were thought to have come from ancient Persia to visit the baby Jesus. Seating is general admission, so tickets may be purchased directly through the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
The Dewberry School of Music’s Mason Opera presents Amahl and the Night Visitors. This celebrated operetta by Italian-American composer and librettist Gian Carlo Menotti tells the classic story of the Magi’s journey to Bethlehem. A perennial favorite since its 1951 debut, this cherished holiday favorite was the first opera specifically composed for television in the United States. Featuring Mason’s talented vocal students in collaboration with an instrumental chamber ensemble, these live, in-person performances will showcase great vocal skill and dramatic ability and deeply immerse the audience in the action of the story.
Mason Opera Stage Director Gene Galvin leads the dramatic action with a spirited cast of talented vocalists, while Musical Director, Conductor, and Professor Joseph Walsh conducts the instrumental chamber ensemble for this production.
