Unexpected Heroes: India Tales

“Fantastic! I loved the show! 

New Moon Theater is proud to sponsor this annual production for a limited run during the holidays.

This classic children’s opera by American master Gian Carlo Menotti uses the Christmas story as a backdrop for a universal tale of generosity and forgiveness. Amahl & the Night Visitors is a beautifully crafted musical fable, as the Three Kings journey is seen through the eyes of a poor young boy, and his purity of heart allows a miracle to occur. This beautiful story of love and compassion points us all to the true meaning of the season.

Originally produced for NBC Television in 1952, Amahl quickly became a well loved holiday tradition for many. New Moon Theater’s production is a wonderful opportunity for schools to bring an entire opera sung by classically trained, professional singers right to their door and allows children to experience an art form that’s been bringing audiences to their feet for over 400 years.
