Stage experience

Throughout my career I have been fortunate to be part of several remarkable theatrical productions. Although they are not my main activity, I am grateful for getting to know the many different ways theatre can be made and how music can be part of it. Below I am trying to highlight just a few that have remained a special memory to me.
