Opera Veteran I.V. Mazzoleni Debuts New Novel LIBRETTO
In her candid debut novel, Libretto, veteran I.V. Mazzoleni presents a compelling, behind the scenes look at the world of opera through an exciting story of ambition, jealousy and tragedy.
Highlighting the realities of demanding practice schedules, fierce rivalries and controlling mentors, Mazzoleni's intense fictional drama is inspired by true events she experienced during her own opera career with what would later become known as the Canadian Opera Company.
"Libretto examines a side of opera audiences never see," says Mazzoleni. "It's an exciting and passionate world, much like opera itself."
