Reviews:

Dear Carmela,

Your play is a gem. You have created such a beautiful story from Verdi’s life. The dialogue you have written makes the characters come alive for the audience (or in this case, the reader), and we cannot help but care very much about these people. Thank you for sharing your play with me!

I apologize for taking so long to write to you. I’ve been traveling to judge the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, I’ve also been busy with master classes. You know well how much time all of this takes, so please forgive me.
