John Adams’s El Niño tells the nativity story with an unprecedented spotlight on the voices of women. Acclaimed British director John La Bouchardière draws inspiration for his imaginative production from the plays used by Franciscan monks in spreading the story of Jesus’s birth through Latin America. With a libretto including poems by Rosario Castellanos and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Gospels from the Bible and the Apocrypha, and Martin Luther’s Christmas Sermon, Adams’ oratorio widens the lens to encounter and explore the inexhaustible miracle of birth. Director of Choral Activities Joe Miller conducts. Sung in English, Latin, and Spanish with English supertitles.
