Kunst diva

“Super Drag Diva” Shequida (pictured here with unidentified gogomeat) will make all kinds of history on December 16 and 17 when she sings her first Komponist in performances of Ariadne auf Naxos at Merkin Concert Hall. This co-production by Ensemble du Monde, Opera Noire of New York and Pegasus Opera of London will also feature the Met’s Anita Johnson as Zerbinetta as well as La Cieca’s dear colleagues Jakob Feldman and Amy Synatzske in supporting roles. And as if the dazzle quotient were not already set on stun, gracing the stage as guest hostesses will be Martina Arroyo and Hilda Harris.

In his review of the downtown cabaret show “Popera,” our own JJ commented, “Tall, slim, and serenely confident, Shequida is the last word in diva glamour; in fact she makes Kathy Battle look like a churchmouse.” So you know he’ll be there for Shequida’s untucked debut.
