Goddesses in You

Who are you?
What makes up your personality?
At the deepest level, what instinctively drives you?
What stereotypical gender roles are expected of you?
Are you living the life of your true self?

Goddesses in You illuminates how women’s lives are shaped by archetypes – powerful inner patterns, personified by twelve Greco-Roman Goddesses and derived from myths.

Archetypal patterns are like the door into a hidden realm, a parallel reality… (They) hold the key to the real you.

GODDESSES IN YOU is due for release late 2022.

Phantoms

The legend lives on in Phantoms… as the modern-day Phantom of the Opera, Eric Destler, plots to take over and rule the Palais Garnier with La Divina, the world-famous soprano, Carlotta Caccini, as his queen. But at every turn he is thwarted by his nemesis, the original Phantom of the Opera, now the Opera Ghost.

Phantoms is set in the dark underground of the famous Paris Opera House and the stage above, where Guiseppi Verdi’s famous opera Macbeth is being rehearsed – exactly one hundred years since the first production of Le Fantome de l’Opera in 1910.

This is a tale about many phantoms – the real, imagined and ethereal – that haunt us all. And about the phantoms who live in the darkest recesses of the world, often lurking behind beautiful facades. It is about parallel worlds, where opera imitates life with potentially catastrophic results.

This is a world where some masks cannot be seen.
