In June 2021, Mia was trained as a librettist at the Really Spicy Opera Aria Institute! Each week, she was paired with a different composer to write a brand-new aria for soprano. She was given a writing prompt, specifically tailored to her writing interests and had the week to collaborate, and receive feedback before submitting by the end of the weekend. She wrote 3 arias. Her lyrics and music can be found below.
