MCANA selects Breaking the Waves for Best New Opera award
The Music Critics Association of North America has announced that "Breaking the Waves" has won its Best New Opera award. An awards committee consisting of Heidi Waleson, George Loomis, Alex Ross, John Rockwell and Arthur Kaptainis selected "Breaking the Waves," which was composed by Missy Mazzoli with the libretto by Royce Vavrek. The award will be given to Mazzoli and Vavrek on July 19th during MCANA's annual meeting in Santa Fe. I am a member of MCANA and will write a report for this blog when I attend the event.
