Berlioz L'Enfance du Christ, Dec. 18, Carnegie Hall
Join us for a special presentation of two rarely performed choral works. Berlioz’s oratorio tells a dramatic and moving story about Mary, Joseph and the newborn Jesus in the days following his birth. It's a story about their flight to save their baby from King Herod, and of the kind but unlikely stranger who finally offers them refuge in his home. With English supertitles. This uplifting story is preceded by a work by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Jennifer Higdon. An innovative work that marvels at the mystery of Jesus’ birth, O magnum mysterium sets the stage perfectly for the Berlioz story that follows.
