History: Established in 2006
When friends and family told opera singer Rose Guccione just how much they loved hearing her sing "Happy Birthday," she founded OperaGram.com®, a modern singing telegram company with an operatic twist. OperaGram.com® recently gained notoriety in a Chicago Tribune "Live!" feature written by Robert K. Elder. The article prompted invitations by radio legend John "Records" Landecker on WLS Radio 890 AM and by NBC5 News Today with Rob Elgas, Zoraida Sambolin and Andy Avalos.
Meet the Business Owner: Rose Guccione
Soprano Rose Guccione has performed several operatic works by Giuseppe Verdi including the title role in Aïda, Elisabetta in Don Carlo, Leonora in La forza del destino, Leonora in Il trovatore and has covered the roles of Elvira in Ernani and Amelia in Un ballo in maschera. Her Aïda was a Chicago Tribune Critic's Choice which declared her "the genuine article of Verdi singers... Guccione's voice was simply magnificent from top to bottom, beautifully nuanced in all dynamic ranges." Beyond the realm of verdian opera, Ms. Guccione has performed the roles of Musetta in Puccini's La Bohème, Micaëla in Bizet's Carmen, Madame de la Haltière in Massanet's Cendrillon, Cinderella's Stepmother in Sondheim's Into the Woods, Elvira in Rossini's L'Italiana in Algeri, Madame Flora in Menotti's The Medium, Großherzogin Tina in Lehár's Mitislav der Moderne, and Mrs. DeRopp in Thompson's Sredni Vashtar.
