Child-friendly Christmas opera performed Dec. 13
The Hudson Valley Lyric Opera will perform the Christmas opera Amahl and the Night Visitors at Graymoor at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13. This is a child-friendly one-act opera by Gian Carlo Menotti, sung in English, about the three kings who follow the star to bring gifts to the newborn Jesus, and a little boy named Amahl who receives a special gift from the kings.
The matinee performance takes place in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Atonement at Graymoor (formerly Pilgrim Hall). Tickets for children over 11 and adults will be $15; children under 11 are free. Tickets will be sold at the door on a first-come basis, and seating is not reserved.
The Atonement Friars invite attendees to come to the performance early to enjoy 100 crèches from around the world on display in the St. Pius X building on the fifth floor. There is no cost to partake in this Graymoor Christmas tradition, and the crèches are on display all through Advent, Christmas and the New Year holiday.
Graymoor is located on Route 9 in Garrison. For information, call the Graymoor Spiritual Life Center at 845-424-2111.
