[21st – 24th August]
Scottish Opera comes to the King’s Theatre as part of the Edinburgh International Festival with Breaking the Waves by American composer Missy Mazzoli. Based on Lars von Trier’s award-winning film, the winner of the 2017 Best New Opera Award from the Music Critics Association of North America tells the story of a young woman living in the Scottish Highlands in the 1970’s. Caught in a torrent of contradictions about how to behave, she struggles to appease.
