Earthen Vessels, The Sandra Organ Dance Company is pleased to present “AMAHL
AND THE NIGHT VISITORS” a ballet choreographed by James Sewell of
Minneapolis that incorporates American Sign Language (ASL) into the telling

The storyline is that of a widow and her disabled child, who are visited by
three wise men. It’s a heartwarming opera that was made for television in
the 1950’s—a wonderful introduction, . “AMAHL” is absolutely accessible to
