Bought for a gift and i know she will love it
Part of the "Inspired by…" series, the Amahl and the Night Visitors Bracelet is inspired by the traditional holiday season opera by Menotti. The tale of the poor lame shepherd boy with the huge heart is a beloved Christmas classic.
I selected deep blue beads and iridescent glass stars to represent the holy night. A Christmas Star charm symbolizes Amahl's song "O Mother You Should Go Outside" imploring his mother to see the massive star that has appeared. The Magi charm indicates the night visitors, who we more frequently know as the three kings or wise men. The crutch charm symbolizes Amahl's only possible gift for the baby Jesus, as he offers it, he is healed of his affliction and accompanies the kings to give thanks!
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
The bracelet was greatly appreciated by the conductor of "Amahl." We wanted to show our thanks with something which reflected the presentation. The beautiful bracelet fulfilled our purpose.
My Amahl bracelet came today and I love it. It brought back happy memories of the times that I sang it when I was in high school. It was a pleasure to participate in.
I have purchased three other Opera Bracelets and they are all very high quality. The colors are beautiful. The only thing I would add is a charm representing the Mother. I was a bit disappointed to not see her represented.
The Three Kings have always been a favorite Christmas theme of mine. And when I heard Amahl and the Night Visitors in my High School music class in 1959 I became an instant fan. So this bracelet is perfect for me on so many counts. Also - I wear blue a lot! But I would wear it with almost anything because of the theme.
This is an absolutely lovely bracelet, beautifully packaged and shipped promptly. Thank you so much!
Our local community is presenting Amahl and the Night Visitors this holiday season. Your bracelet made the perfect gift to give as a commemorative of the evening. Beautifully made. Thank you.
I'm so excited about this Amahl bracelet! It is beautiful crafted.This is my favorite opera and I have sung in it numerous times. I will enjoy wearing this often as it will cause me to sing beautiful arias from this gem of Menotti's! Love it! "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you kindly.."
My daughter was playing Amahl in Amahl and the Night Visitors and I gave her the bracelet on opening night. She was so thrilled and excited she posted a pic of it on FB! It's a beautiful bracelet and depicts the story perfectly. It made a beautiful, memorable gift.
