O Wondrous Night delights the Christmas crowds at SeaWorld Orlando

See also

O Wondrous Night has returned to SeaWorld Orlando for its third year, and the show is just as delightful now as it was when it debuted in 2011.

if you're not familiar with O Wondrous Night, it “the greatest story never told.” It focuses on the barn animals who were present when Jesus was born. The miraculous event is over now, and they're all bickering over who played the most important role in the baby's birth.

I love the music, which is sung by a powerful live chorus, but my favorite part of the whole show is the grand finale. The animals are puppets during most of the story, but at the end they're transformed as the stage is taken over by an entire living nativity with donkeys, sheep, birds, goats, and even camels.

If you'd like a taste of the show, click the video accompanying this article to see this year's version. It's hard to take in on a small screen, so I strongly recommend seeing it for yourself.
