Pupils from St George's School, Windsor Castle, present Menotti's Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors.
Gian Carlo Menotti’s one-act opera is a retelling of the story of the Magi from the point of view of a young disabled boy named Amahl, who lives in poverty with his widowed mother near Bethlehem. He sees a bright star in the sky on the same night as three kings come seeking shelter. A vivid and accessible tale, Amahl and the Night Visitors is a perfect first opera.
Duration is c.45mins. No interval. Tickets: £5
