SONG FROM THE UPROAR (TOUR)

THE ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM (BOSTON, MA)

Composed by Missy Mazzoli | Libretto by Royce Vavrek

Song from the Uproar (2012) is a song cycle based on the life and writings of Isabelle Eberhardt, an early 20th century explorer, nomad, journalist, novelist, Sufi, and one of the most unique and unusual women of her era. At age twenty-seven Eberhardt drowned in a flash flood in the desert. Pages from her journals were pulled from the flood and dried, and one hundred years later became the inspiration for our libretto.
