The Mystic Nativity

Christmas Scenes inspired by Botticelli's painting, 'The Mystic Nativity'

This musical, inspired by Botticelli’s painting 'The Mystic Nativity' (National Gallery, London), can be performed as a choral work or scripted drama. A projected slide of the painting makes an very effective backdrop. Scenes are linked by a sung narration and feature a song and dance performed by the various characters as they visit the Nativity scene.

We performed this as a choral work in our Church. Very moving! Carol Hall, Vancouver
