About Bach’s Christmas Oratorio
The perfect start to the holiday season, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio combines the drama of an oratorio with the religiosity of a cantata, resulting in a piece of astonishingly vivid musical color and intensity of emotion—and sure to be thrillingly realized by the award-winning Philharmonia Chorale.
A top-drawer cast, many making their PBO debuts, is led by Music Director Richard Egarr for an unmissable highlight of PBO’s season.
