Where Melbourne - - Hot In The City - 3–4 De­cem­ber, Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne, St Kilda Road, Mel­bourne. 1800 444 444.

Richard Tognetti will di­rect the Aus­tralian Cham­ber Orches­tra and the Choir of Lon­don along­side evan­ge­list Ni­cholas Mul­roy for two not-to-be-missed Christ­mas con­certs. Bach’s “Christ­mas Or­a­to­rio” is the quin­tes­sen­tial Christ­mas choral ex­trav­a­ganza and sees the com­poser at his most ex­u­ber­ant and joy­ful. It tells the story of the birth of Je­sus through six can­tatas that move from the Na­tiv­ity, through to the birth, and the ar­rival and wor­ship of the Three Kings. Evan­ge­list Ni­cholas Mul­roy will per­form as nar­ra­tor through­out the con­certs, singing lines from the gospels of St Luke and St Matthew.
