NEWS FROM LA GIARA:


We're very happy to announce that two songs from La Giara - The Water Jug, "Isn't It Love" and "A Little Pinch of This And That", were chosen among 180 submissions to be performed in a very special and prestigious concert in Brookfield, CT on August 4th. The concert "Fresh Baked Musicals" was a Concert sampling of new musical theatre composers, organized by author, Carol de Giere. Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin) presented one of his songs from Schikaneder, a new show about the making of Mozart's The Magic Flute. It was a great night of music!! We will be sharing a video performance of "Isn't It Love", soon!

The MANSION

​​​​​​Inside the fairytale Italian palazzo, filled with gold mirrors, fountains, operatic music and singing birds, sad spirits long for love to quell the family curse.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY



A Story about Longing

Hot-tempered Nunzio, explosive as Mount Etna in Sicily, thinks he wears the pantaloni

in his family until his wife and two daughters suddenly disappear...​

La Giara (The Water Jug) merges Italian Folk and Opera with Brazilian Choro and Jazz, telling the story of a family’s emigration from Sicily to Philadelphia. Comprised of dramatic and comedic compositions, La Giara expresses themes relevant to gender oppression and cultural losses that immigrant families transcended while adapting to a new world.

"A Music Score that  evokes melodies of  Puccini,  swing of American Ragtime,  lyrics of Gilbert and Sullivan,  drive of Brazilian rhythm, and memorable songs of  ​Musical Theater."
