Holiday opera

4 Nov

The Amahl Night Visitors, a holiday opera, will be coming to the LCCC playhouse December 4, 5, 6, 12, 18, 19, and 20. The opera will start at 7:30 p.m. on the 4, 5, 12, 18, and 19, and at 2 p.m. on the 6 and 20. Seats will cost $5.

The holiday opera was first performed at LCCC last year, with a lot of success. The performance is a joint effort of music and theater majors at LCCC and is directed by music instructor Nancy Cornish, who hopes to make the opera a holiday tradition at LCCC.

Here you can check out my interview with Terence Elison, an LCCC student and a performer in the opera.

The story is of the generosity of a poor young boy and his mother who ended up housing three kings that were on their way to see the Christ child that had just been born.
