Last updated March 21, 2009.

The site is devoted to the greatest character in musical theatre, the diva Carlotta. Carlotta is a diva in every sense of the word. She's a great singer, actress (even thought the Phantom doesn't think so!) and has a great personality. On this site, you will see interviews, playbill blurbs, pictures, wav files, and everything else about Carlotta!

Here's what two audition notices say about the character:

Carlotta Guidicelli: 30s-early 40s: Coloratura Soprano, to High E. A Diva.
Carlotta Giudicelli: 30�s � Early 40�s. The prima donna of The Paris Opera. A diva in every sense of the word. Coloratura soprano, to high E. Requires opera training.

See the Carlotta Christmas card that was made for me by Thomas Bevel: Front and Back.

Phantom Online Amusement where you can 'shoot' Christine, do word searches and a bunch of other fun things!
