Villa DiodatiMusic by Mira J Spektor, Lyrics by Colette Inez, also by Byron, Shelley, Spektor & Wordsworth

Why did Mary Shelley create Frankenstein’s Monster, 200 years ago, in a cold Swiss lakeside villa??

Villa Diodati is a Chamber-Opera that sings of love, death, ghosts & games…

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Allan Kozinn (In Concert) “…attractive and tonal and recalled some of the more gracious music in Bernstein’s ‘Trouble Tahiti’…Particularly appealing was a  duet between Mary and Percy Shelley: ‘There is no heaven but my love’. 

TALKIN’ BROADWAY: (Staged in NYMTF)  “The unabashedly operatic music wraps you in the warm embrace of the writings timeless romanticism. You’ll probably hear no better musical all this year than Villa Diodati.
