The Drop That Contained the Sea is a song cycle sung in 10 languages, weaving together poems and prayers about water from different cultures. It has a unique concept: it follows a single drop of water as it weaves its way through the world, from clouds to snow, rivers to oceans, culminating in an explosive rainmaking prayer. It's a musical travelogue of vocal traditions from around the world, including Bulgarian women's choirs, African gospel, Portuguese fado, Mongolian throat singing, and more---all with a thrilling orchestral accompaniment.
