Ash Lawn Opera expands its season to produce two performances at The Paramount Theater of the perennial holiday favorite, Amahl and the Night Visitors. This inspirational holiday story has made opera accessible and enchanted families for over 50 years. The cast features principal singers from prestigious theaters such as The Metropolitan Opera, with the participation of local singers from The Virginia Consort and dancers from The Wilson School of Dance, all conducted by Kate Tamarkin, the Music Director of the Charlottesville & Univeristy Symphony Orchestra.
In English, an hour in length, and at accessible prices, Ash Lawn Opera begins a new holiday tradition for families in Charlottesville!
