John Adams conducts his acclaimed opera-oratorio El Niño, a contemporary re-imagining of the traditional nativity story told from different perspectives.
John Adams is known for bringing together the old and the new to create works that combine contemporary musical and traditional narratives.
El Niño explores the issues surrounding the traditional nativity story paying particular attention to the character of Mary and the journey of motherhood. The libretto, compiled by Adams himself, draws on a variety of sources from pre-Christian prophets to twentieth century Hispanic female writers.
