REVIEWS ARE IN FOR MISSY'S 3rd OPERA, PROVING UP:
"Harrowing...powerful...a true opera of our time." - Anne Midgette, Washington Post
"The music of Missy Mazzoli is a treat in and of itself and that is especially the case in collaboration with Royce Vavrek. It's a rarity to see a tale set in Middle America and a welcome and much-needed addition to contemporary opera. To experience "Proving Up" is to see an American story nearly never told: one of the failure of its promise." - Opera Wire
"Brilliant" - Musical America
"There is no better way to illustrate how hard it is to achieve the American Dream than to detail the struggle of homesteaders who desperately want to attain a farm deed on the unforgiving Plains. This production achieved that with excellence." - Omaha World Herald, review of Proving Up, April 2018
MISSY PROFILED IN FORBES: "This Musician is Dedicated to Gender Equality in her male-dominated field"
