Composer Ellen Reid has won the Pulitzer Prize for Music with her composition "p r i s m", which is her debut opera.

According to the jury, Reid wrote a “bold new operatic work that uses sophisticated vocal writing and striking instrumental timbres to confront difficult subject mater: the effects of sexual and emotional abuse.” The libretto is by Roxie Perkins. The opera was produced last year by the Los Angeles Opera.
