Composer Missy Mazzoli says she hesitated to create the work when librettist Royce Vavrek first proposed it. "Breaking the Waves" premiered in September at Opera Philadelphia, where Mazzoli was composer-in-residence, and is being presented for a second time at Prototype, New York&#039;s annual festival of experimental opera that opens Thursday.</p><br clear="all"/>
