Go back in time to Italy with Alessandra Belloni and I Giullari di Piazza when they present their traditional Southern Italian family show "La Cantata dei Pastori,' complete with devils, dragons, stilt walker, commedia dell arte character, and La Befana, the good witch of Christmas. Renowned singer/percussionist Alessandra Belloni appears as Mary in this beloved story of Mary and Joseph travelling to Bethlehem. On the way, the devil dispatches demons to try to stop the birth of Jesus, and there are many escapades, but good triumphs over evil, and the show ends with the birth of Jesus and a singing of the oldest recorded Neapolitan Christmas song. Performed in Italian with English narration by La Befana, this joyous production is enacted by 15 musician/singer/dancers who specialize in traditional Southern Italian theater and music. Also a celebration of the Winter Solstice, the performance will take place Friday Dec. 22, 8 PM, at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue (bet. 9th & 10th). Reservations: 212.254.1109.
