Calvary University invites you to enjoy the beautiful Christmas Story of ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors’ composed by Gian Carlo Menotti and conducted by Sarah Bourdess, in her Master’s Recital.
Amahl, a boy known for his tall tales and the occasional lie, gets around on a crutch due to his disability. As he sits outside playing his shepherd’s pipe, his mother calls for him to come inside. Amahl is slow to react to his mother’s commands. Finally, after several attempts to get him inside, he walks into the house. Amahl tells his mom a grand story of a giant star rising high in the sky above their house. Of course, she doesn’t believe him and tells him to stop bothering her.
Come hear the rest of the story, in this one act opera, conducted by Sarah Bourdess as she performs her Master’s Conducting Recital on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 7:30 pm in Liberty Chapel on the Calvary Campus.
