A truly masterful work.
Within the first few lines I was instantly transported back in time, felt my chest tighten and memories flood me. I instantly knew where in time we were, as an American who lived through it in real-time, though Svich doesn't name it. The voices create both beautiful melodic moments and cacophony, and emotions swell like an orchestra.
Really beautiful work begging to be staged, designed, choreographed, etc AND CAN BE in countless different ways. I hope it continues to be produced, like a warning and a prayer, and gain power in repetition. ”
