Coming to the Timucua Arts Foundation March 24-25, see Queen of Swords – a brand new rock musical telling the life and times of Julie D’Aubigny. An openly bisexual opera singer and sword fighter from the 17th century, Julie lived an amazing life that included becoming the Prima Donna of the Opera Paris, dueling three men at once, and committing arson to rescue her girlfriend from a convent.
Presented as an in-concert reading, Queen of Swords is directed by Tara Kromer and features a cast of local all-star performers. Names include: Ema Pava as Julie D’Aubigny with Juan Cantú, Cathy Colburn, McKenzie Jo Frazer, Mark Gray Miller, Jarrett Poore, Kari Ringer, Eduardo A. Rivera, Fredy Ruiz, and Matt Stevens as the various characters in her life. Sarah Lockard serves as the narrator.
Queen of Swords will be presented live in concert at Timucua Arts Foundation, 2000 South Summerlin Ave in Orlando on March 24th and 25th, 2023 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online. The entire show will also be available via livestream and video on demand.
