Here's what a few of them have to say about working with Verismo!

2015 Richard Tucker Award Winner, 2013 Cardiff Singer of the World
Simply put, Beth Stewart is made of awesomesauce and magic. She’s imaginative in how to engage with companies and fans, incredibly prompt with her work, and consistently thinks ten steps ahead of me. Her work is inspiring, excellent, and satisfying in every way. I can’t imagine there being a better fit for me!
Santa Fe Opera, English National Opera, Washington National Opera
International Opera Award Nominee, Mabel Dorn Reeder Prize Winner
Beth is one of the most creative minds I've had the pleasure of knowing. It's hard to call her my "publicist" because she invests so much more than the job description suggests. Beth tells my story beautifully (in an aesthetically pleasing, tech-savvy way, which is beyond me!), but in a sense, she's also co-created it. She helps me pinpoint and better articulate my strengths and weaknesses, my mission as an artist, and how my unique gifts can positively impact the world. Beth's involvement in my life, artistically and personally, is invaluable. There's a reason I call her my "partner in inspiration"!

John L. Magro Resident Conductor for Cincinnati Opera, International Opera Award Nominee
You won’t find someone more committed to collaborating and achieving your artistic goals. I honestly didn’t think it was possible to like my site as much as I do, but I love how original and yet how simple it is. I’ve never seen a site like mine and I wouldn’t change a thing! Working with Verismo was better than I could’ve ever expected – it was a unique experience personalized to me to meet my goals.

Emmy® Award Winner, Best Historical Documentary
Beth Stewart is the kind of collaborator everyone dreams of – the one person who amplifies the entire project. I love her work and the way she conducts herself – she’s personable and always professional, she knows her own mind, and she communicates her expertise perfectly. She’s a brilliant mind, a hard worker, and an ace writer who knows her stuff and produces results. She’s just phenomenal – I don’t know how I’ve lived this long without her!

Beth is amazingly talented in the myriad ways this work requires. Her ability to listen, synthesize, and inject her own artistic aesthetic while honoring all that we’re about is extraordinary.

Beth Stewart is the freaking best. To quote Mary Poppins, working with Verismo is "practically perfect in every way." Beth has the vision for my public image and the great design chops to make it happen. She has exceeded my expectations in all fields. I'm looking forward to more work together!

From the first moment that I met Beth I knew that I had met my match in gung-ho-ed-ness! She truly is ten steps ahead and was so available to me during the design process that she honestly made me feel like she was ONLY working with me. I continue to be truly impressed with how responsive she is. Working with Beth is fun, exciting, and educational – I admire her work ethic and the final product is something that I am truly proud and excited about! With every interaction we have, Beth proves her intellect and skill.
