Opus X : December 2005 Solution

Suprisingly, this turned out to be one of the most difficult Opus X's posted. The clues fell in three areas:

1. The girl in the German dress is Brooke Shields. The German word for brook is Bach.
2. The background simply depicts Christmas.
3. In the picture under the mantle to the right there is a betogaed (still love that word! Translation: wearing a toga) man. He is an Orator on the surface of the planet Jupiter (lot of Mozart guesses from that! :P). The moon pictured in orbit is Io.

Put it all together and you get:

J.S. Bach- Christmas Oratorio
