(Cancelled) Breaking the Waves at BAM

Friday, June 26, 20207:30pm

This season, BAM presents Mazzoli’s “dark and daring” (The New York Times) reimagining of Lars von Trier’s Breaking the Waves, the tale of Bess McNeill, a woman besieged by tragedy and the contradictions of the disparate figures in her life. Set in the remote Scottish Highlands, Mazzoli’s textured original score is a nuanced, intensely personal, and ultimately feminist take on Bess’ moral plight. What does it mean to be good when your agency is taken away from you?
