Drag Me to the Opera

Aida Cupcake Presents—MTC Up the Alley

Aida cupcake is here to prove that the flamboyance of drag and the flamboyance of opera are a match made in heaven. Aida takes us through her journey of pursuing a professional career in opera. The show featured famous arias transcribed into English so you could follow along. These songs accented the beats of her story that helped connect you more to the operatic piece and her story. It’s ironic I’m reviewing this show because the whole point of her show was to not care about the course others try to put us on. It was a beautiful story about loving yourself and the gifts you bring to the world however they may look or sound. A wonderful show with some technical and beautiful singing. A wonderful Fringe gem.
