The Queen in Me

Hosted by Nightwood Theatre


Meridian Arts Centre, 5040 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON, M2N 6R8, Canada

After selling out its world premiere in June, Nightwood Theatre, Amplified Opera, the Canadian Opera Company and Theatre Gargantua are thrilled to bring back The Queen In Me by interdisciplinary artist Teiya Kasahara 笠原貞野 (they/them), accompanied by pianist David Eliakis (he/him). Combining comedy, drama, and opera, this electrifying show 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 bold new possibilities for the future of the art form and beyond.
