Overview

Affinity Collaborative Theater launches a partnership with The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space with their moving and popular production. Written in 1942 when the world was at war, Auden’s Oratorio is a parable that merges the Biblical and the contemporary with a result that is simultaneously audacious and poetic. Come spend a winter evening with this company of New York’s finest classical actors as they bring to life the story of Christmas as only Auden could tell it.
