The Velvet Oratorio

Untitled Theater Company #61 premieres The Velvet Oratorio, a retelling of the Velvet Revolution through text, choral music, and scenes based on Václav Havel's Vanek plays. The text for the oratorio draws upon U.S. State Department documents and corresponding Czechoslovakian / Soviet documents and interviews with journalists, diplomats, and ordinary people who were in the streets of Prague in November 1989. The Velvet Oratorio is a collaborative project between Edward Einhorn (playwright), Henry Akona (composer), and Karen Ott (dramaturg), the same creative team that was behind the Havel Festival.
