Mariuccia shares the stage with her daughters Nadine and Glorian, also UK qualified Floral Demonstrators. In consecutive order they create beautiful floral arrangements on stage to complement their own dress creations being paraded on the catwalk. Each session is performed in the artist's unique style, all the while adhering to her chosen theme. Many of the gowns designed by Mariuccia, Nadine and Glorian are also hand-painted by themselves resulting in stunningly beautiful dresses.
Between each floral and modelling session audiences are treated to amazing ballet performances, poetry recitals, classical songs and in some editions, piano concertos.
More than eighteen hours of May Inspiration 8mm film and VHS footage condensed into this five minute movie. The film highlights some of the outstanding live stage performances produced by Mariuccia and family throughout the eighties. Worth noting is the gargantuan effort needed to set up shows of this calibre and size. The 1989 edition alone had a complement of over 100 performers and models on stage, 14 sound, light and stage technicians and ten helpers back stage. The 1989 edition was compared by Jerry Gambin and Anna Bonanno. The stage was managed by Aldo Micallef Grimaud. Mario was responsible for the theme music and special effects.
