FOLLOWING A STAR
Crescendo Operatic Society brings beautiful music, traditional carols and the Christmas story to you, to complement your seasonal festivities.
First, the singers will present Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors, which is about a poor young shepherd boy who meets three royal travellers on their way to bring gifts to a prophetic infant. The boy’s name is Amahl, and he is just like any ordinary boy, except for being crippled since birth. He is somewhat naughty and curious about the gifts that the kings carry, but what he learns during their visit is of far greater worth than gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Then, you will be uplifted with glorious carols that augment a reading of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, The Three Kings.
Following a Star will take you to this beautiful Christmas experience.
