Britten recalls the time he had left England and followed Auden to the States. Having tried the American Way of Life, he found that he had roots in England. Britten decides to return home, though Europe had descended into War…

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.
