This week’s Opera Philadelphia world premiere of “Breaking the Waves” may be a homecoming for its score’s composer, ruminative avant-garde musician and Lansdale native Missy Mazzoli. But her new opera — a Bartok-to-Bjork-inspired adaptation of Lars von Trier’s dark 1996 film “Breaking the Waves” — and its bleak, thematic libretto comes from an outsider to the area (but certainly not to the operatic form), Royce Vavrek.

Out and proud country singer/songwriter Ty Herndon swings into town to perform his hits at the Rrazz Room at the Prince Sept. 17. Herndon, who has a new album coming out Oct. 28 entitled “House on Fire,” chatted with PGN about his music and life.
