Amahl and the Night Visitors by Gian Carlo Menotti.

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a Christmas opera for the whole family. Gian Carlo Menotti weaves an intimate portrait of a poor mother and son on the brink of homelessness. They are visited by three resplendent kings on their way to see the Christ-child. Throughout the evening, the three guests guide the impoverished family from their state of despair to ultimate hope as the kings tell of the birth of the Earth’s true king. What can Amahl and his mother do for a child who promises to save the world? Miracles abound in this beautiful gem of an opera that is sure to touch hearts of all ages.
