Start a new holiday tradition this weekend with a unique opera for all ages. Amahl combines child-like wonder with a deep message perfect for the whole family. Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra and Madcap Puppets present the story of a shepherd boy, his mother and their miraculous, life-changing encounter with the Three Wise Men searching for the first child.

This opera features professional soloists, chorus and larger-than-life puppets. Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for children under 18. 7:30 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. Gallagher Center Theater at Xavier University, 3800 Victory Parkway, Norwood. ccocincinnati.org.
