Anna Russell: A Visitation, stars that Chicago treasure, Genevieve Thiers. Thiers doesn’t impersonate Russell as much as she gives herself over to hysterical, operatic possession.
Sad that the COVID19 pandemic caused you to miss Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Ring Cycle last Spring? Thiers and Russell to the rescue! They explain it all to you! From leitmotif to accidental incest, they don’t leave a, "Ho jo to ho!" unexamined!
Genevieve Thiers has sung leading roles with Chicago Lyric Opera (Praskovia, The Merry Widow,) Goodman Theater (Daliah, Trouble in Tahiti,) Porchlight Musical Theater (Belle, Little Me) and many more companies in Chicago and NYC. She has been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and for the Taste of Chicago events, and at theaters across town singing American and modern music with Fulcrum Point music project and similar. Here’s what audiences have said about Anna Russell: A Visitation "Our audience loved her! Some of us remember the real Anna Russell, and this is a spot-on imitation, but with modern overtones. Even our beginners loved it!" --Bonnie Zeitlin, Northbrook Chapter, Lyric Opera "Definitely one of the most unusual and exciting programs I have ever seen! Thiers brings the fun." "It's like Dame Edna meets Tina Fey meets opera. I could have watched this for a whole day."
Thiers and Transgressive is bringing the opera-laughs right into your living room!
