Set in the 1930s, this Kentucky Opera production captures the essential spirit of Christmas.

Follow the Three Kings as they stop for shelter at the home of Amahl, a poor 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 Christ Child.
