RESONANCE WORKS announces the return of its beloved holiday tradition, Menotti’sAmahl and the Night Visitors , reimagined in a brand new production at a new venue: the Charity RandallTheatre in Oakland. Paired with beautiful contrasting works by Handel, Debussy, and Vivaldi , this uniqueprogram will delight and inspire the entire family. This year’s production continues Resonance Works’ partnership withthe University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Theatre Arts, and launches new partnerships with the voice department ofSlippery Rock University, as well as the W omen’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh and the GreaterPittsburgh Community Food Bank . Performances are Friday, December 15 at 7:30 pm and Sunday,December 17 at 3:00 pm . 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). Resonance Works’Artistic & General Director Maria Sensi Sellner will conduct. 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 [ … ]
