“None of these children had ever seen real theater, nor had they heard that kind of music. I believe we have planted some important seeds.”
“After attending Amahl, my students were babbling about the experience. They could not stop talking about all they had seen and heard!”
“I believe it was my students’ first exposure to classical music and they LOVED it!”
– Educators after Amahl open rehearsals
“A delightful experience!”
“First rate in every way – appeals to all.”
“The highlight of the holiday season!”
– Amahl patrons

Music, mischief, and miracles combine in the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra’s production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s Christmas chamber opera Amahl and the Night Visitors – the tale of the shepherd boy Amahl, his mother, and their miraculous, life-changing encounter with the Three Wise Men.

Opera singers, Pones Inc. dancers, Madcap Puppets, a full choir and the CCO combine in a performance that is the first of its kind, appealing to all ages!

Join us at Xavier University’s Gallagher Center Theater for this 50-minute chamber opera that has taken its place as a holiday must-see in the Queen City.
