End-of-the-year Roundup: Premieres by Missy Mazzoli described as some of the “strongest this year”

Acclaimed music critic and author Alex Ross calls Missy Mazzoli’s latest opera The Listeners “a potent, chilling and excruciatingly relevant work” (The Rest is Noise). In The New Yorker, Ross labels Missy among “a growing cohort of American women taking possession of contemporary opera,” going on to say The Listeners is “one of the year’s strongest music-theatre scores.”

In the Chicago Tribune, Hannah Edgar names Mazzoli’s Orpheus Undone “one of the best symphonic performances of the year.”
