The Mindfulness of Opera: A Collaboration with Aspen Words
Saturday, July 27, 2019, at 5 pm
Join composer and performer Missy Mazzoli - called “one of the more consistently inventive, surprising composers now working in New York” by The New York Times – and prolific librettist Royce Vavrek in an exploration of their latest opera, Proving Up. Based on Pulitzer Prize Finalist Karen Russell’s short story, Proving Up, this 90-minute, intriguing discussion will dive into the process of creating your passion while maintaining peace and equanimity- or at least the illusion of it! Take part in this riveting conversation, followed by a live, sneak preview of scenes from Proving Up
