The Queen in Me

Hosted by Queer Arts Festival


181 Roundhouse Mews, Vancouver, BC, Canada

June 21 & June 22
7 PM

The Queen in Me explores the constraints of conventional opera roles and their reliance on gender and sex stereotypes, exploding operatic expectations of demure muses and femme fatales by turning the genre on its head.

The curtain rises mid-performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, as the Queen of the Night’s highly anticipated aria, Der Hölle Rache, begins. However, this time, the Queen rebels against her expected narrative, refuses to finish the opera, and tells her story in her own words for the first time – at a cost.
