Featuring music from La Bohème, Lucia di Lammermoor, Macbeth, Madama Butterfly, Manon Lescaut, Rigoletto, Salome, and The Magic Flute.

Combining comedy, drama, and plenty of opera, this exuberant show by interdisciplinary artist  Teiya Kasahara 笠原貞野 (they/them) explores the many ways that race, gender, and sexuality are policed in the opera industry.

Through the lens of The Magic Flute's iconic Queen of the Night, the show reclaims space for the multitudes of women, trans, and non-binary individuals excluded from the stage, daring to imagine new narrative possibilities for the art form.
