“You gave so much to this show and I am so grateful for all your input in direction and with the flow of the commedia parts. Your presence in this show was more magical to me than I could ever express in words. You were so much more than I even anticipated you would be and I am so grateful you traveled so far to be a part of “Pulcinella’s Dream” Jennifer Meller, Artistic Director – Dance Through Time, Baroque Dance – San Francisco Conservatory of Music

“Angela attended our Commedia workshop that took place in Florence, Italy. Angela has very good energy and a positive attitude in relation to her collaboration with others. Her creative approach to the work makes her a pleasure to work and create with. Angela combined her previous with acting skills, commedia dell’arte theatre and Renaissance dance. Her goal in attending our workshop was to further develop her already rich experience as comic actress.
In my workshop, Angela learned elements that I learned from my Commedia Master Ferruccio Soleri in the Piccolo Teatro more than 20 years ago.”
