Opera | LA Opera's Breaking The Waves: '..powerful, permeating mood. Dark and daring' - NYTimes (virtual)


Missy Mazzoli's Breaking The Waves is a compelling adaptation of Lars Von Trier's 1996 cinematic masterpiece. After a near-fatal accident leaves Bess's new husband, Jan, paralyzed, he implores her to take lovers (quite the ask). Torn between her husband's wishes and the traditional values of her small community and her church, she determinedly follows her faith to a tragic end. Winner of the 2017 award for "Best New Opera" by the Music Critics Association of North America. "It is not easy to find new operas that command attention, tell their story lucidly and create a powerful, permeating mood. Dark and daring, 'Breaking the Waves' does all this with sensitivity and style." - New York Times The streaming will be available until Apr 12th.
