Product Description

This sparkling Christmas Musical brings Botticelli's magnificent painting to life once again.

It will be enjoyed by children of all ages for many Christmases to to come.

Seven scenes depicting the Christmas story culminate in a final tableau replica of Botticelli's painting, 'The Mystic Nativity'. This cross-curricular project involves, music, art, religion, history and language. Inspiring songs for solo and ensemble voices have added harmony and instrumental suggestions.

There are approximately 40 speaking / singing parts; extensive Choruses of Choruses: Angels - 7 in white gowns, 7 in pink, 4 in brown, 2 in green; Shepherds; Sheep; Townsfolk; Travellers; Entourage; Demons make this musical entirely suitable for School Productions.

Performance Suggestions: The set, costume and positions of characters are based on those in the painting. Different levels can be achieved by the use of stage blocks and careful positioning. Alternatively, the musical can be performed as a choral work with a slide of the painting (available from the National Gallery, London) projected as a backdrop.
