Composer and sound artist Ellen Reid announces the release of her Pulitzer Prize-winning work, p r i s m, out on August 23 via Decca Gold. With a libretto by Roxie Perkins, the unflinching, genre-defying opera takes on the topic of sexual assault and recovery and was commissioned and produced by Beth Morrison Projects in association with Trinity Church Wall Street. 

p r i s m premiered in November 2018 to universal acclaim in sold-out runs on both the east and west coasts, as a part of New York's Prototype Festival and the LA Opera's Off Grand series. Tackling subject matter that is currently front and center across news media, Reid's work uses haunting vocals and sonically daring instrumentation to bring to light the psychological struggles of sexual and emotional abuse.
