About the Author
Carmen A. Cisnadean’s love and passion for the written word, for the power of language and communication, has led her to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a Minor in Russian from the University of South Carolina, a school that graced her with cum laude honors. She was bestowed recognition for writing an alternative ending, re-writing Act IV, to Umberto Giordano’s opera “Andrea Chénier,” a contest sponsored by the world renowned tenor Yusif Eyvazov. As a winning contestant, Carmen enjoyed an invitation to Milano, Italy, and the famous opera house Teatro alla Scala in January of 2018. In addition, Carmen has written and published several articles on Thrive Global with an intent to inspire mindfulness in an ever changing modern society.
When it comes to writing, Carmen’s poetry writing is very closely linked to exceptional music and fantastic visual art, both which serve as major sources of inspiration and influence in her life. Amidst a myriad of artists she adores, two of her absolute favorites are the Russian artist Michael Cheval and the English artist John William Waterhouse. Two of her favorite composers of music are the Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski and the German composer Hans Zimmer, both composers of film scores. Carmen is extremely fond of classical music, amongst her favorites are composers such as Dvorak, Wagner, Rossini, Schubert, Vivaldi, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mozart, Saint-Saens, to name just a few. When it comes to literature the list would be a comprehensive scroll depicting the romantics. Her favorite poet happens to be a poetess by the name of Emily Dickinson, not because she could necessarily classify her as a romantic but because she can classify her as a relentless realist.
