(CANCELED) John Adams conducts El Niño

John Adams conducts the May Festival Chorus and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in his groundbreaking El Niño

The miracle of life, close to its creation. John Adams conducts his groundbreaking El Niño. Described as “some of the most beautiful episodes I’ve ever heard in any of his music” by BBC Radio, El Niño is a retelling of the Nativity story from unique perspectives. Featuring poetry by Latin American women, Adams gives us a retelling of the birth of the Child from a mother’s point of view.
