Actors from Porthole Players, Ltd. prepare for our upcoming performance of Amahl and the Night Visitors. This is one you, your family, and friends are not going to want to miss!

The Newport Symphony Orchestra and Porthole Players collaborate on the production of “Winter Wonder,” a December performance evoking the music, the magic, and the miracle of the winter holiday season!

The performance starts with a reading of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” –an anecdotal reminiscence of Christmas from the viewpoint of a young boy, portraying a nostalgic and simpler time. This narrative was written and recorded by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas in the early 1950s, and will be read by Newport actor Rhodd Caldwell.

Next comes a performance of the holiday musical classic, Amahl and the Night Visitors, a heart-warming tale is of a poor widow and her son, who are visited by the three Wise Men on their journey to Bethlehem – and what happens. Music is with a piano, two oboes, and conducted by NSO’s Brad Capshaw. Amahl and the Night Visitors was the first opera ever written for national television, and had its premiere live on Christmas Eve in 1951.

Performances will be at Newport Performing Arts Center on Saturday, December 8th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 9th at 2:00 p.m. Ticket prices: $25 and $39 (plus fees), $10 for children & students.
