In December 2023, the Academy of Sacred Drama will present a Christmas oratorio in collaboration with the American Classical Orchestra. Bencini likely premiered Gesù Nato, a Christmas oratorio, in Bologna in 1742. The work—which centers on the shepherds who witnessed the Nativity—features vocal soloists, a choir, and an orchestra of trumpets, oboes, and strings.
We have a great cast for Gesú Nato: Linda Tsatsanis, soprano, will play the role of Salomino, Kate Maroney, mezzo-soprano, will be Osea, and Alex Guerrero, tenor, will sing the part of Labano.
Join us for an exciting new season featuring oratorios in the extended Roman sphere.
Learn about a forgotten musical genre that was popular for over 150 years.
