UAB Opera Presents: Amahl and the Night Visitors - Nov. 11 & 12, 2011 - Hulsey Recital Hall
Join the UAB Department of Music on Nov. 11 - 12, at 7:30 PM in the Hulsey Recital Hall as UAB Opera presents "Amahl and the Night Visitors" by Gian Carlo Menotti, directed by Dr. Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk, Assistant Professor of Music. General admission is $5.00 Synopsis: Amahl, a crippled shepherd boy, tries to tell his mother about what he has seen outside; an enormous star with a long tail. His mother, used to his habitual lying, grows angry; she is even angrier when Amahl tells he that a knock at the door is three kings come to visit them. The kings enter and tell the two peasants that they have come to find a child, and they show the rich gifts they have brought him. While Amahl's mother is out gathering wood for the fire, Amahl asks the kings questions about their lives. The mother returns with her neighbors, and the villagers present their gifts to the visitors. That night, Amahl's mother tries to steal some of the kings' gold to use to help her own child; she is caught, and when the kings offer to let her keep the gold, explaining that the king they seek will need nothing but love to rule his kingdom, she returns it. Amahl offers his crutch as an additional gift, and suddenly finds that he can walk. He leaves with the kings to pay homage to the child who has healed him.
