Thank you!



Amahl and the Night Visitors

Libretto and music by Gian Carlo Menotti

A poor child...
          three strange kings...
                    dancing shepherds...
                              and a miracle

A magical Christmas opera for all the family

Sunday 16 December, St John's Smith Square
Friday 21 December, Bampton Church



Our work

Our well-established national reputation is founded on a policy of

  • championing little-known works of the late 18th century
  • in lively and accessible productions of exceptional musical standards
  • in English translations
  • and providing performance opportunities to some of the finest young singers
