Amahl and the Night Visitors


The WCSU department of music will present the annual holiday classic "Amahl and the Night Visitors" in the Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the university's Midtown Campus, 181 White St. in Danbury.



The WestConn Opera Ensemble is thrilled to once again present Gina Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors on Dec. 6 at 3:00 pm and Dec. 7 at 7:30 pm In Ives Concert Hall on the Midtown Campus of WCSU. 

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a story of a poor shepherd boy's encounter with three kings and the miraculous healing of his crippled leg when he offers his crutch as a gift to the holy child.  This short opera has captivated audiences around the world ever since its premiere. Its charming mix of tuneful melody, dancing rhythms, delightful choruses, humor and poignancy, makes this work immediately accessible to audiences of all ages and musical tastes.

 At Western Connecticut State University, Amahl and the Night Visitors, directed by Margaret Astrup, has become an annual tradition for the Opera Ensemble, reaching out to hundreds of school children as well as family audiences annually.
