Lisa Mezzacappa’s Glorious Ravage Reviewed

Source: SFCV.

The spirit of adventure powers Lisa Mezzacappa’s musical expedition, Glorious Ravage, which enjoyed its Northern California premiere at the Brava Theater, in San Francisco’s Mission District, Oct. 1-2. Mezzacappa, in collaboration with four local filmmakers and a virtuosic ensemble of Californian musicians — and an entrancing vocalist from New York — sourced and magically reimagined the legacy of a handful of women explorers from a century-and-more ago, leading the appreciative audience into its own thoroughly modern series of discoveries.
