Our acclaimed production returns by popular demand!
Gian Carlo Menotti’s
Amahl and the Night Visitors
presented at the
Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
296 9th Ave, New York, NY 10001
On Site Opera proudly presents the revival of its modern take on the holiday classic, Amahl and the Night Visitors, in a production that connects this timeless story of charity and miracles with the prevalent issue of housing instability in NYC. Presented at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, and in partnership with Breaking Ground, New York City’s largest provider of permanent supportive housing for the housing unstable, performances will feature a chorus made up of community members who have experienced housing vulnerability performing alongside renowned opera soloists and musicians.
With this revival, On Site Opera, Breaking Ground, and Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen hope to continue to shine a light on the issue of housing vulnerability in New York City, and share how the arts and social services can work together to benefit our community.
