A treasured Chicago holiday tradition for all ages! This is the 11th annual production of this classical favorite, performed for the second time at the Royal George! One of the most popular and inspiring operas of all time, this is the moving story of a young crippled shepherd boy and his mother who meet the three kings following the star in the search for the wondrous child. Sung in English with the orchestra, featuring dancers from Ensemble Espanol Spanish Dance Theatre. Original Direction by Francis Menotti, son of Gian Carlo, based on his father's original 1951 production. The program will open the premiere of Victoria Bond's new one-act children's Hanukkah opera.
