Beginning with the Nativity, the oratorio recounts the visits of the shepherds and the magi, the naming of Jesus and the flight into Egypt. With its vivid picture of dispossessed people, the Christmas Oratorio has many resonances for today. This performance marks the end of the Belief and Beyond Belief events at Southbank Centre through 2017.
London Philharmonic Orchestra principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski is joined by distinguished soloists: Swedish soprano Maria Keohane, German mezzo-soprano Anke Vondung, British tenor Andrew Staples, and German bass-baritone Stephan Loges.
