About

In the timeless spirit and pageantry of medieval church dramas and mystery plays, eight singers and five instrumentalists playing reproductions of medieval instruments recount the events of Christmas. From the message of the archangel Gabriel to the shepherds and the journey of the Magi to the manger at Bethlehem, to the intrigue of Herod and his court, and the flight into Egypt--The Waverly Consort presents an uplifting celebration of ritual drama and song. Last at the Kennedy Center in 2002, The Christmas Story has been praised by the Chicago Tribune as "one of the joys of the season."
