'Amahl and the Night Visitors' will be presented at Bethesda Lutheran Church

The Bethesda Music Series will present “Amahl and the Night Visitors” by Gian Carlo Menotti Sunday at 7 p.m. at Bethesda Lutheran Church at 450 Whitney Ave., New Haven.
The opera will be performed by Western Connecticut State University Opera Ensemble and produced and directed by Margaret Astrup.
There will be no admission charge, but a free-will offering will benefit Immanuel Baptist Shelter of New Haven. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans WestConn Opera will match a portion of the funds donated.
This 50-minute holiday classic features Lucas Hernandez from Hamden as Amahl and Amanda Forker from Wethersfield as his mother. Featured as the three kings are Scott Towers and Zachary Ross, both from Branford, and Jean Carlos Rodriguez of Waterbury.
Front-row seats are saved for young children.
“Amahl and the Night Visitors,” a one-act English operetta, is the tale of the miraculous events that occur when the three kings pause on their way to Bethlehem to rest for a night at the home of a poor shepherd boy and his widowed mother.
