A shifting of power without blood, something almost unheard of in history. "The Velvet Oratorio" is a play set on this historic event in 1989 Czechoslovakia, following a cast of characters as they deal with this shift of time. Praised throughout, this play may prove an excellent addition to any company's roster. "The Velvet Oratorio" is an excellent pick for theatre collections and for theatre fans.
