New York-based director Andrew Ondrejcak presents an experimental take on the traditional operatic diva, replacing them with queer and trans performers who are on the forefront of contemporary performance. Lip-synching to Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas (1689), they infuse energy and meaning to the iconic myth—which receives a radical update for 2018. The film features Love Bailey, Bebe Huxley, and make-up star Gottmilk among others, and premiered on Nowness.com in June, 2018.
