Christmas opera promises to enchant

In an unusual but timely presentation, the Cowichan Symphony Society is presenting the magical Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors

In an unusual but timely presentation, the Cowichan Symphony Society is presenting the magical Christmas opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors, in four performances set for Wednesday, Dec. 30 and again Saturday, Jan. 2 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. both nights.

This family show is being presented at the Christian Reformed Church at 930 Trunk Rd. in Duncan.

The leading role of Amahl will be sung by the Valley’s Reuben Broadway.

He has been studying voice since 2008, winning many awards and has been marked as one-to-watch provincially in musical theatre as well.

Broadway has been seen locally in the role of Gavroche in Les Misérables at the Chemainus Theatre Festival, and is currently playing Michael Hobbs in Elf at the same theatre.

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a one hour single-act opera originally written by Gian Carlo Menotti. It was commissioned by NBC television and first performed by the NBC Opera Theatre on Dec. 24, 1951where it was broadcast live on television from that venue as the debut production of what became the renowned Hallmark Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the show are available through the Cowichan Ticket Centre by phoning 250-748-7529 or at the door at a cost of $40 for family of four, $18 per adult or $5 per child.
