Queens Opera Theatre: The Gift of the Magi

Celebrating the holiday season, FTH Space Grantee Queens Opera Theatre presents "The Gift of the Magi", composed by Peter Ekstrom. The classic O'Henry short story, set to music and lyrics, tells the story of a young couple living in New York City on Christmas Eve 1905. They loved each other so much that they each sold their most prized possession to buy the other a Christmas present. Their special gifts bring a touching reaffirmation of their unselfish love.
