Sea of Reeds poses some curious questions. For instance: why would a staunch, lifelong atheist suddenly decide to go to Israel at the age of 52 to stage his own bar mitzvah? And what in the world does playing the oboe have to do with the Book of Exodus? You probably don't know the answers to either of those questions just yet, but in this brand-new comedy that is part monologue and part musical, Josh Kornbluth will take to the stage to shed some light on these offbeat topics. With an orchestra, his rabbi and his oboe in tow, Kornbluth delivers a unique night of entertainment with Sea of Reeds. Learn More

This preview was an intriguing airing of ideas about the Bible, Jesus, the Gnostic Gospels, recent biblical research, music, and of course Mary Magdalene herself. Mark Adamo was very articulate and enthusiastic about the concepts behind his music and the libretto, and the two cast singers, Nathan Gunn and Sasha Cooke, had equally interesting things to say about their roles (not to mention singing a duet from the opera).
I'm not a wild fan of modern music but I bought a ticket to the opera!
This is not a full performance, but a discussion of the show which includes musical excerpts.
