In the Baroque casket in the center of Rome, ancient and modern Christmas music, from Alfonso Maria de Liguori to White Christmas

Opera e Lirica Srls Presents

" Christmas concert "
A pleasant Christmas concert is scheduled at Rome, Saturday December 17, 2022 (8.30 pm) at theOratory of the Caravita, a Baroque casket in the heart of the Eternal City, located a few steps from Via del Corso not far from the Trevi Fountain, and adjacent to the sumptuous Church of S. Ignazio.

The program, varied and engaging, presents a journey between ancient and modern Christmas music, from the traditional Adeste fideles at the Pastoral of Arcangelo Corelli, from Minuit Chrétien of Adolphe Adam to Christmas carols par excellence, loved and known all over the world, You come down from the stars of Alfonso Maria de Liguori is Stille Nacht / Silent Night of Franz Xaver Gruber. In the second part of the evening we move on to songs closer to the present day, 'classics' that cannot be missed at Christmas, such as the very famous White Christmas (1942) by Irving Berlin – with around 50 million copies it is the best-selling single in history – Let it Snow (1945) by Jules Styne and, inevitable, Jingle Bells by James Lord pierpont, not as recent as one might think: it dates back to 1857, and although written for Thanksgiving Day, it was soon associated with Christmas, becoming one of the best known and most performed American songs.

To intersperse the Christmas pieces, there is no shortage of songs by Mozart, Handel, Mendelssohn is J. Strauss.

The soprano will give life to the concert Queen Clementine and the tenor Emil Alekperov, accompanied by piano is string Quartet.

Designed primarily for those passing through the city, for tourists and travelers eager to experience a musical emotion that is also a relaxing moment, a break between visits to museums, monuments and archaeological sites, transported by the notes, voices and beauty of the music, the Christmas concert proposed by Opera and Lyrics it is also perfect for leaving the frenzy of shopping and Christmas preparations behind for a moment, immersing yourself in the magic of festive melodies.
