By popular demand, the perennial holiday favorite, Amahl and the Night Visitors, returns to The Paramount Theater on December 14th. This hour long inspirational holiday story in English has made opera accessible and enchanted families for over 60 years. The cast features principal singers from prestigious theaters such as Washington National 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 & University Symphony Orchestra.
