Amahl lives with his mother in a small rural village in Judea, where shepherds tend their flocks. His leg is paralysed, so he needs crutches to get around. One night Amahl is woken by the bright light of a brilliant star. Suddenly, there is a knock at the door, announcing the unexpected arrival of the Three Wise Men – an encounter that will forever change Amahl’s future.
Pupils from the High School Senior Class of the Vienna Boys’ Choir present Gian-Carlo Menotti’s much-loved opera, which is a Christmas favourite in the English-speaking world.
