Missy MazzoliTue, 26 Sep 2017
This past summer, the Cincinnati Opera presented its first opera composed by a woman. Song from the Uproar by Missy Mazzoli finds inspiration from the journals of early 20th-century explorer Isabelle Eberhardt. The chamber opera was performed in collaboration with concert:nova and you can re-live the experience on 90.9 WGUC on November 26 at 8pm.
Missy Mazzoli is a successful composer whose music has been performed by many major artists including the Kronos Quartet, eighth blackbird, Emanuel Ax, the New York City Opera, the LA Philharmonic, and many more.

She plays piano and often performs with Victoire, a band she founded in 2008 that focuses on performing her works.
