press release: "They Called Her Vivaldi" - Theatre Lovett (Ireland)
Cecilia Maria is a sensitive musical prodigy, making a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world, until one night her magical, musical hat “Capello” goes missing... Now she must venture out into the noisy city to track down the mysterious Cat Burglar. Along the way she meets a pizza maker with no saltshaker, a gondolier with no oar, a hairdresser with no scissors. Her adventure brings her face to face with the sneaky thief and a startling truth about herself. Part comedy, part thriller, this new production celebrates the power within us all to follow our dreams.
