A Wonderful Three Day Event

Made up of both church and secular compositions with vocal soloists and choral sections, Bach's Christmas Oratorio was intended to be played over six days during the festive period with a day dedicated to each event in the nativity. The original programme included The Birth, The Annunciation of the Shepherds, The Circumcision and naming of Jesus, The Journey of Magi and The Adoration of the Magi.

Join the BSO as they bring you the majesty of Bach's epic work in a wonderful series of three concerts, filled with all the magic of the season this is a truly special way to spend Christmas with your loved ones.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
