Breaking Waves @ The King's Theatre

The European premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s dark and daring opera, Breaking the Waves, takes place at the King’s Theatre as part of this summer’s Edinburgh International Festival.

Breaking the Waves is a wrenching moral drama about a woman’s twisted bargain with God. Based on Lars von Trier’s controversial film, US composer Missy Mazzoli’s opera won the 2017 Best New Opera Award at the Music Critics Association of North America and was shortlisted the same year for an International Opera Award.
