Collaboration is key to the magnificent “Song From the Uproar”

There must also be words devoted to Subbaraman, who was the music director for the production. He and his five musicians are upstage for the entire performance, and watching him conduct is a full-blown treat in itself. Watching him take musicians and singers through the emotional highs and lows of the music, carelessly wiping his steaming brow with the sleeve of his shirt, and demanding and offering all that the music has to offer is a sight to behold.
