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.

Tamar and Judah grapple with powerful questions that resonate deeply in today’s world. Cohen and Michelson bring to life a tale that illuminates moral challenges through a score influenced by Middle Eastern, Jewish, Asian music and pre-Western chanting.

“Tamar has courage. Tamar is something new.” — Adam Guettel
