Synopsis:

Amahl and the Night Visitors is a retelling of the 3 wise men of the Orient from the point of view of a young disabled boy named Amahl, who lives in poverty with his widowed mother near Bethlehem. He sees a bright star in the sky and tell his mother to go look, but she brushes him off. That night 3 Kings come across their meagre hut and seek shelter for they have traveled long and far following the star of which Amahl had spoken. They bring with them treasure and gifts to give “the Child” who has just been born and will reign over all. Blinded by the lure of Gold and what it could do for her family the mother attempts to steal just a bit of the treasure, but is caught red handed. What no one expects is a gift far greater than Gold – blessed by “the Child”, Amahl finds himself suddenly cured of his disability! Amahl follows the Kings to visit the “infant Child”.
