Saint-Saëns: Christmas Oratorio

This concert has already taken place!

Previous Event Next Event

The 23-year-old Camille Saint-Saëns wrote his »Oratorio de Noël« in the space of just 12 days. Lyrical and intimate in character, the work puts us in the Christmas mood on St Nicholas's Day. This will be the first performance of the French oratorio on historic instruments.
