Amahl Community

Written for TV and aired on Christmas Eve in 1951, Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors is a retelling of the story of the Magi from the point of view of a poor young shepherd boy named Amahl. Amahl is disabled and lives with his widowed mother near Bethlehem -- they have lost everything and are about to go begging. Amahl is known for making up fanciful stories, so one night when he tells his mother about seeing a giant star with a tail of fire, naturally she doesn’t believe him. Later that night, much to their surprise, their humble home is visited by three kings, seeking shelter during their trek to follow the star. The kings bring all sorts of treasure and gifts to give to the child they seek. When everyone’s asleep, the desperate Mother tries to steal some of the kings’ gold but is caught during the attempt. What happens next is a gift far greater than gold!
