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!

Amahl and Barbara

"This one-act work is one of those truly rare family works that is immediately accessible on every level—by both children and opera novices—and yet is still meaningful to the most seasoned opera-goers."
- Dennis Polkow, Newcity Stage

"The performance demonstrated the careful attention to detail which Chamber Opera Chicago bestows on all its productions. The parting of mother and son at the work’s close was moving indeed."
- Richard Covello, Reviewer for Chicago Tribune and Opera Canada

"Miraculously…forever young. It’s comforting to know that a gentle little opera about a lame boy who meets up with three kings can still work its magic on us."
- Opera Magazine

"I loved it. It gave me such a good holiday feeling…it lightened my heart!"
- Patron Post-Show Review
