TAMAR OF THE RIVER is an allegory about the ferocity of Love and the potency of belief. It's about fear driving people to contradict themselves and act in opposition to their own wishes. In this war-torn world, where the east and west are divided by a river red with blood, one young woman is called to raise her voice. As she sets out single-mindedly in pursuit of peace, each decision that brings her closer to her goal also brings unanticipated, sometimes tragic consequences. Starring Rocky the Musical's Margo Seibert who since moving to NYCc in 2010 has made herself an invaluable addition to the emerging musical theatre scene.
Dreamlike and seductive it is. Power surges come when things build and build and then there are sudden exquisite moments of stark beauty: a capella simplicities with a solo voice following a breathless silence. --Talkin Broadway
Whether in solo or in groups, TAMAR OF THE RIVER (A World Premiere Recording) offers a dizzying array of vocal brilliance. Leading the cast as Tamar, Margo Seibert exposes listeners to a range of tonal and artistic maturity that Broadway's ROCKY didn't allow her to show. She flutters down chromatics with appealing dexterity and colors her notes with gripping emotionality. Her supporting cast, comprised of Ako, Erik Lochtefeld, Vince B. Vincent, Mike Longo, and Margot Bassett, all bring their individual skills to the table, ensuring that Marisa Michelson's undulating score is always beautiful, even when unnerving and discomforting. --Broadway World
Michelson s music is hard to describe; otherworldly, perhaps? It is the chanting that makes Michelson s work so striking; in many places, she uses her 12-person chorus as if they were musical instruments, complementing her five-piece band. These voices are used in the manner of strings or horns, mostly; Michelson occasionally has them sing in tones that waver above and below pitch, making things sound off-kilter. This sort of thing, elsewhere, has been known to drive my ears away; in this case, it drew me into the score a recording of which has, most fortunately, just been released by Yellow Sound. Yes, it is different, and unlike what musical theatre audiences are accustomed to but that only adds to the excitement. --Steven Suskin, Playbill
