Christmas in Italy...without leaving home

A holiday tradition returns to New York, and is happening Sunday night. Christmas in Italy, produced and performed by the incredibly talented Cristina Fontanelli, takes place at Carnegie Hall, Dec. 9 at 3 PM at Carnegie Hall (Zankel Hall.)

The luminous Cristina sings beautiful and sweeping songs from Italy, some operatic arias and, of course,  holiday favorites. Young performers join Cristina on stage, and it is truly a wonderful event for families to enjoy.

Just a few tickets left for this year’s show. Go to

As they say in Italy, Buon Natale!
