Amahl and the Night Visitors is a short opera in one act by Gian Carlo Minotti with an original English libretto written by the composer in 1950. It tells the story of Amahl, a disabled boy who lives with his single mum somewhere in Palestine, some 2,000 years ago; they don’t have enough to eat. That night, there is a very bright star in the sky and also Three Kings turn up looking for a newborn baby for whom they have lots of gifts….
Amahl and the Night Visitors is also a short film created by Sands Films in 1996. This film has never been released before: It is a Sands Films premiere!
