La Cantata dei Pastori (The Shepherd’s Cantata)

December 22, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| $25

Go back in time to Southern Italy with Alessandra Belloni and I Giullari di Piazza when they present the beloved 17th century play “La Cantata dei Pastori” (The Shepherd’s Cantata), performed by an ensemble of musicians, singers, and dancers specializing in traditional Southern Italian arts. Renowned singer/percussionist Alessandra Belloni stars as Mary travelling to Bethlehem, meeting the hilarious commedia dell’arte character Razzullo, and fighting off demons sent by the devil to try to stop the birth of Jesus. With the help of the Archangel Gabriel, on stilts, good triumphs over evil, and the play ends with the birth of Jesus and a singing of the oldest recorded Neapolitan Christmas carol. Performed in Italian with English narration by La Befana, the good Christmas witch.
