Opera Omaha presents Missy Mazzoli’s opera Proving Up (2018) in its premiere recording with the International Contemporary Ensemble and conductor Christopher Rountree and soloists. Crowned as “Brooklyn’s post-millennial Mozart” by Time Out New York, Mazzoli is one of today’s most exciting young composers. Her music is state of the art, frequently employing electronics, but simultaneously full of nostalgia and melancholy. Mazzoli has received considerable acclaim for her operatic compositions, including Breaking the Waves (2016) and Song from the Uproar (2012). 

Proving Up, with a libretto by Royce Vavrek based on a short story by Karen Russell, offers a surreal and disquieting commentary on the American dream through the story of a Nebraskan family homesteading in the late 19th century. The piece has received rave reviews and will be presented in several of the biggest US opera houses in the coming years. The Washington Post called it “harrowing... powerful... a true opera of our time.”
