During our December 19th worship service, the fourth Sunday of Advent, we will be presenting the world premiere of “The Lady of the Inn,” a Christmas opera in one act. The opera will be performed by mezzo-sopranos Stephanie Kacoyanis and Christina English, members of the Grammy-nominated vocal ensemble Lorelei. The music was written especially for our church and for Lorelei, by award-winning composer and pianist Mari Kotskyy. The libretto was written by Katherine Garrison Chapin, a twentieth-century American poet who was best known for her collaborations with composer William Grant Still. Lorelei gives special emphasis to promoting the work of women’s voices.


In addition to being written and performed by an all-female creative team, this opera tells the Christmas story from a woman’s perspective, something which is unusual in dramatic accounts of Jesus’ birth. The characters in the story consist of the wealthy “lady of the inn” and her maid, who leads the lady of the inn to see the error of her ways after she turns Mary away from the inn on the night of Jesus’ birth.


A sincere thank you to Minister of Music Julia Scott Carey for bringing this amazing opportunity to Central Square Church. It is truly a Christmas gift for us.
