In this sweeping world premiere, composer Heather Christian infuses the classical oratorio with blues, gospel, jazz and soul. Oratorio for Living Things unfolds the complex layers of what it means to be alive and our relationship to time. Staged by Obie Award-winning director Lee Sunday Evans and featuring 18 virtuosic singers and instrumentalists, the experience surrounds and uplifts, celebrating our curiosity, our wonder, and what we’re capable of becoming when in communion with each other. 

HEATHER CHRISTIAN is the daughter of a blues musician and a go-go dancer and is an Obie Award winning composer/performer. She was named one of TimeOut NY’s Downtown Innovators To Watch and has been nominated for a Drama League Outstanding Performance Award. She has released eight records and can be seen all over the world as Heather Christian & the Arbornauts in concert halls and dive bars avant-torching.
