The Lion, the Unicorn, and Me

Washington National Opera Open Rehearsal

Grades 4–6, Terrace Theater (2 hours), December 14, 2018
Sung in English with Projected English Titles


As the first Christmas nears, who among the animals can lead Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem? Fearsome Lion and graceful Unicorn are the top contenders— though it certainly won’t be Donkey, whose only humble gift is a small but sturdy back. But with the birth of a very special king on the horizon, Donkey soon discovers that miracles can happen anywhere! Based on the award-winning children’s book by Jeanette Winterson, this heartwarming production returns with whimsical costumes, music from a Tony®-award winning composer, and a talented cast featuring the Domingo- Cafritz Young Artists and the WNO Children’s Chorus.
