DIVAS is a world premiere play with opera music that finds nine great opera divas from across three centuries locked together in the afterlife, pitted against each other to fight for the soul of opera. Packed with incredible true stories, sumptuous fashion, and gorgeous music, DIVAS is a hilarious and poignant showcase of larger-than-life women whose voices reverberate across the centuries. Inspired by divas’ extraordinary contributions to music, fashion, and the political and economic progress of women as the first career women in the West, DIVAS asks: what is the power of opera? Can women harness it to new ends?
