They Called Her Vivaldi

Buy Tickets
Monday, March 25 at 10:00 AM
Smith Opera House

M. Haberdasher has crafted very peculiar earmuffs for his very particular daughter Cecilia Maria. Don’t shout about it but Cecilia Maria thinks they make her look fascinating and has whispered her thanks. They Called her Vivaldi is an upbeat comedy-adventure about a sensitive musical-prodigy making a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world. As our young heroine journeys over cobblestones and canals, we learn about love, loss, the place of salt in our diet and the courage to lose our footing without losing our way.

For ages 7 plus and adults of all ages. The performance is about 60 minutes. There is a brief use of strobe lighting during the performance.

The Arts Review

“Cheerfully imaginative… Vibrancy is everywhere in directors Muireann Ahearn and Carl Kennedy’s charming production. Theatre Lovett are at the top of their game. They Called Her Vivaldi review – they’ll call her marvellous.”
