New York composer Missy Mazzoli gives insight into her opera The Listeners

Her apocalyptic imagination has created music for orchestras, chamber groups, and TV/film soundtracks for Amazon TV among others.

The Listeners will be world premiered during Ultima on Saturday September 23rd. It is an opera about our desperate desire to belong to a community, and the dangerous power of charismatic leaders. Enjoy this exclusive opportunity to hear Mazzoli with her librettist Royce Vavrek and director Lileana Blain-Cruz in conversation about the background to the opera, its development and production.
