Shequida, Americas only Julliard-trained drag opera diva (and a recent finalist on the NBC-TV show America's Got Talent) presents a limited engagement of Holly, Jolly, Jessye. Performances of this light-hearted holiday extravaganza by Jessye Normus, The World's Biggest Opera Diva (a larger-than-life character embodied by the petite Shequida), begins December 9th at The Cutting Room.
Holly, Jolly, Jessye is a very special holiday concert featuring spirited banter and all of Jessye's classic arias, her favorite Christmas songs, a sampling of negro spirituals, and some Chanukah favorites. The set list for this very big show in a very small room includes Feliz Navidad, O Come All Ye Faithful, Kumbaya, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and much, much more. It certainly wont be a Silent Night!
