The University Singers present Respighi’s Laud to the Nativity and
Mason Opera presents Menotti’s Amahl & the Night Visitors
The University Singers and Mason Opera presents “Christmas Voices,” a performance of Ottorino Respighi’s Laud to the Nativity and Gian Carlo Menotti’s Amahl and the Night Visitors. Both works, composed in the first half of the twentieth century, capture the timeless mystery and glory of Christmas. Respighi and Menotti were both inspired by medieval Italian paintings of the nativity and therefore drew together modern and traditional musical styles in their compositions. Vocal soloists, a chorus, and a small orchestra will bring this moving performance to the stage to get audiences in the Christmas spirit!
