DMMO's "Amahl" Sunday at Noon

Join us at noon to hear Gian Carlo Menotti's "Amahl and the Night Visitors" from the Des Moines Metro Opera. This modern classic tells the story of a poor mother and her crippled son, Amahl, discovering the healing power of love while giving shelter to the three Wise Men. This Performance Iowa broadcast was recorded on December 6-7, 2013, with Pierce Mansfield as Amahl, Julie Makerov as Amahl’s mother, and Todd Thomas as King Melchior.
