Ever wonder how seemingly androgynous stars achieve sex symbol status? A clue may be found in a fascinating yet horrifying historical precedent - the legendary Castrati. These allegedly castrated male sopranos turned the Baroque world upside down with their angelic voices and outrageous lifestyles. De monstruos y prodigios, using extreme physical comedy coupled with live vocal, violin and harpsichord performances, reveals the musical brilliance, gross decadence, and harsh violence surrounding three centuries of this bizarre musical sensation.
