The Civitella Ranieri residency program is significant to me in many ways. First, it provides me with an inspiring place for working on my new opera. Second, it gives me the necessary rich Italian cultural stimulant that is crucial to the ritualistic nature of my interdisciplinary work. Third, it sets me up among the group of wonderful musicians, visual artists and writers that allows me to have partners for discussions on the daily basis. Fourth, it exposes me to a network of European music industry that is highly important for the next stage of my professional career as a composer-performer. Last but not least, it takes care of all my
daily needs to the point that I will never forget it for the rest of my life. This is one of the most artistic environments I have ever had. Thank you Civitella Ranieri Foundation!
