Amahl and the Night Visitiors
Setting: Bethlehem in the first century after the birth of Christ
Amahl, a boy known for his tall tales and the occasional lie, gets around on a crutch due to his disability. As he sits outside playing his shepherd's pipe, his mother calls for him to come inside. Amahl is slow to react to his mother's commands. Finally, after several attempts to get him inside, he walks into the house. Amahl tells his mom a grand story of a giant star rising high in the sky above their house. Of course she doesn't believe him and tell him to stop bothering her.
Once the sun has set, Amahl's mother worries about her and her son's future. Before falling asleep, she prays to God that Ahaml doesn't have to turn to a life of begging. Suddenly, there's a knock at the door. Amahl's mother shouts for Amahl to answer it and Amahl happily gets out of bed. He opens then door, and to his surprise, finds three luxuriously appointed kings. Amahl's mother shuffles to the door. Having just traveled a long distance to deliver gifts to a child of great wonders, the Magi ask for permission to stay at their home for the remainder of the night. Amahl's mother warmly ushers the three kings into her home.
