Opera Theatre Production in November at Johnson Memorial
The one-act opera by composer Gian-Carlo Menotti is one of the most popular operas in the repertoire and has been enjoyed by audiences around the world, said Linda Dobbs, professor of music at Marshall University and director of the opera. Its story of the power of love delivers a potent message in today’s world. Amahl, a poor crippled shepherd boy, and his mother receive a brief visit from the Three Kings who are on their way to see the newborn Christ child. When Amahl is miraculously cured, he joins the kings in their journey to celebrate the new child’s birth.
“We are pleased to feature two young Huntington singers, Majesty Hill and Ethan Proctor, who will share the part of Amahl,” Dobbs said. “We also welcome Marshall alumna and adjunct professor Marlayna Maynard who will sing the Mother.”
The cast also includes Marshall University vocal students, including Sean Price, Robert Nunez and Sean Link, who portray the kings. They are joined by dancers directed by Ella Hay from the Art Center School of Dance.
