Marisa Michelson and Joshua H. Cohen's ambitious world premiere musical about an endless war between East and West bites off more than it can chew.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Tamar of the River is a compelling and innovative music theater work inspired by the Biblical story of Tamar and Judah. In a war-torn world, where East and West are divided by a River red with blood, one young woman is called to raise her voice. As Tamar sets out single-mindedly in pursuit of peace, she journeys to a foreign land, finding a new family and unexpected love. Each decision that brings her closer to her goal also becomes a choice she struggles to accept.
