This fall in South Texas, three rivers converge. . .
Where Rivers Meet is a performance and education project that project culminates in a world première: a triple bill of the Japanese noh play Sumida River; Song of the Yanaguana River, by 2015 Poet Laureate of Texas Carmen Tafolla; and Benjamin Britten’s one-act opera Curlew River. Join us for the performances and for all that leads up to them. . .
