Britten and Auden’s Personal War

Salon Séance is a collaboration between musicians and dramatists, in which an actor attempts to channel the spirit of the dead composer. Together, they explore a question that is as relevant today as it was then. Join us to ponder the question “How do I live in a broken world?” by exploring the relationship between two British exiles — the composer Benjamin Britten and the poet W.H. Auden.

Salon Séance is a project co-created by Mari Lee and Simon Lee. For more information please go to
