Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the story of an imaginative, disabled young boy and his hardworking singlemother struggling to get by. When Amahl opens the door to three mysterious strangers on their way to Bethlehem, all oftheir lives are changed forever! Filled with humor, generosity, and hope, this timeless story reminds us all of theprecious, unshakeable optimism of a child. Resonance Works is the only professional performing arts organization inPittsburgh to produce Menotti’s heartwarming holiday classic, which was the first opera written for television(premiering on NBC on Christmas Eve in 1951.)

Starring in the title role of Amahl is Liam McCarthy , Aspinwall native and 8th grader at Sacred Heart ElementarySchool. Most recently seen as Miles in Opera Columbus’s production of Turn of the Screw (2017), McCarthy, a 7-yearmember of the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus, has also appeared with the Pittsburgh Opera, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra,and Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra. Mezzo-soprano Ivy Walz (Cincinnati Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera)makes her Resonance Works debut in the role of Amahl’s Mother. Playing the Three Kings are tenor AndrewMaughan (Santa Fe Opera, Opéra National de Bordeaux), bass-baritone Andrew Adelsberger (Ash Lawn Opera, Annapolis Opera), and bass Jonathan Stuckey (Cleveland Opera Theatre, Opera Western Reserve).

Stage director Craig Joseph , who most recently directed Resonance Works’ production of Side by Side by Sondheim ,returns to spearhead this new production. “I remember going to see a local production of Amahl and the Night Visitorsseveral times when I was a child,” Joseph recalls. “Now, as an adult, it strikes me that, in addition to the miracle of theChrist child’s birth, the story is also about the miracle

of a child’s imagination: how Amahl begins to dream about and actualize a better world in which he and his mother canlive. Over the course of the story, what he believes becomes reality –a second miraculous incarnation. It’s thistransformation I hope to capture in our upcoming production.”

The first half of this year’s program features instrumental soloists from the company’s flagship ensemble, theResonance Chamber Orchestra . Harpist Marissa Knaub Avon is featured in Debussy’s Dances Sacrée etProfane for harp and strings. Bassoonist Andrew Genemans , who just won a position with the Grand RapidsSymphony, will perform Vivaldi’s Bassoon Concerto in E minor.

This holidayseason, the company will partner with both the W omen’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh and theGreater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank . Volunteers will be on hand before and after each performance tocollect both non-perishable food items and other essential needs for these organizations. “We hope that when peoplecome to our Amahl this year, they will also take the opportunity to help our neighbors in need this holiday season,” saysArtistic and General Director Maria Sensi Sellner.

This production also launches a new collaboration with the voice department at Slippery Rock University and Dr.Christopher Scott. Students in SRU’s voice department will understudy the roles in Amahl , gaining invaluableprofessional experience, and will have the opportunity to star in their own performance with the Resonance ChamberOrchestra on December 16th at 7:30 pm at Slippery Rock United Methodist Church. The Slippery Rock ChamberSingers will serve as the chorus for all of the performances.
