The Christmas Oratorio by Heinrich Schütz - December 6

Musica Nuova and The Weckmann Project are pleased to present the Christmas Oratorio (Weihnachtshistorie) by Heinrich Schütz, the first New York performance of this Baroque masterwork in over a decade.

Jeffrey Grossman of The Sebastians will lead an esteemed ensemble including Parthenia: A Consort of Viols for two performances in the historic Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Heights.

Under the stage direction of Walker Lewis, the singers of Musica Nuova will dramatize the Christmas story with staging and movement that brings out the coziness, intimacy, theatre, and unexpected humor of the timeless tale.
