Exploding operatic expectations, soprano Teiya Kasahara 笠原貞野 explores the constraints of conventional opera roles and their reliance on gender and sex stereotypes, combining Queen of the Night and other classic arias with original text.
Teiya Kasahara – a biracial, masculine non-binary female artist – explores the constraints of conventional opera roles and their reliance on gender and sex stereotypes, and explodes traditional expectations of demure muses and femme fatales by turning opera on its head. Combining Mozart’s the Queen of the Night with original text and classical opera, THE QUEEN IN ME serves as a critique of the opera industry and a reimagining of what it could be. Created and performed by Teiya Kasahara, and directed by Andrea Donaldson. Presented by Amplified Opera and Theatre Gargantua.
