“Tamar of the River strikingly demonstrates the difference between the merely ‘novel’ and the genuinely new, crossing musical boundaries and finding a synchronicity between timbres and musical worlds that creates a genuine sense of wonder.” – Maury Yeston
For generations, the East and the West have been divided by a river red with blood.
Now, in a war-torn world, one young woman is called to raise her voice. In this barrier-breaking new musical, Jonathan Larson Award-winners Marisa Michelson & Joshua H. Cohen
create a compelling choral parable that illuminates the moral challenges inherent in the struggle for peace.
