I realy like how the setting looked like, the music, and the lights how it lit up certain parts and how they changed.


My favorite part were when the three kings were at the door and every time Amahl checked the door he opened it shrieked and shut the door.


My favorite part about Amahl and
the Night Visitors was the dancing.


I’ve never been to an opera before
but it was great!
