Short Synopsis
Amahl and the Night Visitors is a holiday favorite full of joy and cheer for family and friends. The story tells of the night the Three Kings, following the star to Bethlehem, stop for shelter at the home of Amahl, a poor, crippled shepherd boy who lives with his widowed mother. Inspired by the Wise Men's tale of a kingdom "built on love alone," Amahl offers his own simple gift to the Holy Child.
