St. John the Divine and River Oaks Chamber Orchestra will present their second annual production of Amahl and the Night Visitors, on January 6th, 2012, at 6 and 8pm, at The Church of St. John the Divine.
The perfect way to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany, “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” by Gian Carlo Menotti, is the story of the journey of the Magi to visit the new Christ Child. Told through the eyes of a child, it is a poignant tale of a crippled shepherd boy and his destitute mother’s encounter with the three kings. This story inspires as it beautifully illustrates the true meaning of Christmas.
