Heather Christian’s Oratorio For Living Things
About Oratorio For Living Things
From Ars Nova — the company that brought you KPOP, Freestyle Love Supreme and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 — and Heather Christian, a “composer of blazing creative ambition” (The New York Times) comes the music event of the theater season:
ORATORIO FOR LIVING THINGS
Directed by Lee Sunday Evans
In this sweeping world premiere, composer Heather Christian imbues the classical oratorio with blues, gospel, jazz and soul. The result is an in-the-round fusion of music and theater, staged by Obie Award-winning director Lee Sunday Evans and featuring eighteen virtuosic singers and instrumentalists. Both otherworldly and achingly intimate, Oratorio for Living Things heralds Christian as an undeniable artistic force — and inspires us to reflect on the mystery of human experience, set against the vast scope of cosmic time.
