‘El Niño: Nativity Reconsidered’ by the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC*)

December 15, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

On December 15, YSC presents the AMOC* production of contemporary composer John Adams’s El Niño: Nativity Reconsidered with libretto by Peter Sellars and concept by Julia Bullock, “one of opera’s fastest-rising stars” (Vanity Fair).

El Niño is a chamber music arrangement created and conducted by Christian Reif and was first performed at The Met Cloisters in 2018. The New York Times calls it “intimate, affecting and quietly rich with activism.”

Julia Bullock was nominated for a Grammy in November 2023 in the category of Best Classical Solo Vocal Album for Walking In The Dark with the Philharmonia Orchestra and conductor Christian Reif, who is conducting El Niño: Nativity Reconsidered for this performance. The album features Memorial de Tlatelolco from El Niño: Nativity Reconsidered.
