La Dottoressa, The Musical

1 September 2019

"La Dottoressa, the Musical" tells the amazing story of legendary feminist, scientist, educator, mother and advocate for world peace, Maria Montessori. Her life's work in nurturing the light within each child is at the core of this work for the musical stage. Her message, that the child holds the hope for human kind is profound and, as relevant today as it was during her lifetime. This work will transform her pedagogy into a music that the world can further share. "La Dottoressa, the Musical" is written by Matty Selman, the son of Dr. Ruth Selman, American Montessori's 2001 Living Legacy Honouree.
