Most everyone knows the story of the Nativity, but probably not from the donkey’s point of view! As the world’s first Christmas nears, an angel is conducting an important interview: who among all the animals can lead Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem? Will it be Lion, fearsome ruler of the jungle? Or might it be Unicorn, graceful steed to lovely maidens? It’s certainly not Donkey, whose only humble gift is a small but sturdy back. But with the birth of a very special king on the horizon, and one bright star blazing the way to a crowded inn, Donkey soon discovers that miracles can happen anywhere–even right in front of his nose.
British author Jeanette Winterson‘s award-winning children’s book comes to vibrant life in a world premiere production by WNO Artistic DirectorFrancesca Zambello, conducted by Kimberly Grigsby with the WNO Orchestra, and starring Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists and other rising stars. Following last holiday season’s sold-out engagement of Hansel and Gretel, be sure to see this original, heartwarming family opera, certain to become an instant classic.
