One of the most popular operas of all time, Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the story of how a crippled, young shepherd boy’s life changes forever when he sees an amazing star “as big as a window.” When three kings following the star in their search for a wondrous child encounter Amahl and his mother, the result is a timeless and inspiring message of how faith, charity, unselfish love and good deeds can work miracles. Chamber Opera Chicago's moving production of this classic favorite will fill your hearts with the true meaning of the holiday season!
