As the first Christmas nears, who among the animals can lead Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem? Fearsome Lion and graceful Unicorn are the top contenders—though it certainly won’t be Donkey, whose only humble gift is a small but sturdy back. But with the birth of a very special king on the horizon, Donkey soon discovers that miracles can happen anywhere!
When WNO first premiered this family-friendly opera in 2013, the Washington Post praised its “fresh energy and charm,” and tickets quickly sold out. Based on an award-winning children’s book and featuring music from a Tony®-winning composer, this heartwarming production returns for the holidays with whimsical costumes and a talented cast, to include members of our Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program and the WNO Children’s Chorus.
