Heather Christian's Oratorio For Living Things

A WORLD PREMIERE OFF-BROADWAY PRODUCTION
March – April 2022

Ars Nova at Greenwich House,
27 Barrow Street
By HEATHER CHRISTIAN
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.
