Carolina Uccelli (Pazzini) was born in Florence and made her debut as a composer with the performance of the sacred opera Saul at the Teatro della Pergola on 21 June 1830. Uccelli wrote both libretto and music for the opera. A two-act melodrama Anna di Resburo with libretto by Gaetano Rossi was performed in Naples in 1832. The overture of her opera Eufemio da Messina was performed in Milan in 1933.[1]
