Opera Philadelphia: Breaking the Waves composer Missy Mazzoli and librettist Royce Vavrek.
Based on the 1996 Academy Award–nominated film by Lars von Trier, composer Missy Mazzoli and librettist Royce Vavrek’s chamber opera tells the story of a couple’s sacrificial love. Before the world premiere, cast members perform excerpts, and Mazzoli and Vavrek discuss the creative process.
Lars von Trier’s fantastically wrenching 1996 film Breaking the Waves has been adapted into a new opera by composer Missy Mazzoli, librettist Royce Vavrek and director James Darrah. Excerpts from the opera will be performed this coming Monday, September 12, at the Guggenheim Museum and then the opera itself will officially premiere in an Opera Philadelphia production in Philadelphia from Thursday, September 22 through Saturday, October 1.
