Naamah’s Ark

By Royce Vavrek and Marisa Michelson

June 17, 2018 at 7:00PM | Rockefeller Park, 75 Battery Place

This dramatic oratorio by composer Marisa Michelson and librettist Royce Vavrek tells the story of Noah’s Ark, from the perspective of Noah’s wife. Naamah is a strong woman who must guide all the diverse species of animals in coming together as the Ark reaches dry land. From the birds to the hippos, each group has its own concerns. Can they learn to live together after the crisis has passed? In a new version of the piece, community members from Lower Manhattan join MasterVoices in shared music-making to explore themes of diversity, the role of women in society, and the possible devastation of climate change.

Presented in collaboration with the River To River Festival in Lower Manhattan, this summer event is free and open to the public.
