From December 6 – 8, 2019, celebrate Christmas at the Opera with a heartwarming one-act family opera about a young boy who meets three kings on their way to bring presents to the baby Jesus and learns that the act of giving is sometimes its own gift.
Expanded for 2019, the 90-minute show includes a quaint and cozy production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s English-language opera Amahl and the Night Visitors followed by a concert of seasonal selections, such as “O Holy Night” sung by members of Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artist Ensemble as well as a traditional carol sing-along.
The first opera composed specifically for television audiences, Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl & the Night Visitors, inspired by the biblical story of the Magi and the Italian tradition of the Three Kings, is a charming and uplifting story about love, faith, and the true spirit of the holiday season.
Calgary Opera’s Christmas at the Opera is a heartwarming, family-friendly musical holiday extravaganza. The show is appropriate for children of all ages, and a limited number of booster seats are available.
Plus, enjoy performances of seasonal favourites.
