She has directed over 50 opera productions in Italy, the U.S.A., Germany, Japan, Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, Norway, Ireland, Syria, Malta and South Korea and enjoys a reputation for creating elegant and dramatically powerful productions in the great Italian tradition.  "My mission is to create stunning productions the audience will applaud with enthusiasm, the critics will love and the performing artists will truly believe in and enjoy interpreting. I love to put fire in the belly of traditional works while remaining true to the the composer and librettists inner design. An excellent artistic event that optimizes the relationship between costs and product is the ultimate objective in a time of careful budgeting where the need to draw the paying public into the theatre is paramount."
