Why Shakespeares Criminal and Studio 54?
Shakespeare's Criminal celebrates the eternal bond between gay men and the women who love them. As long as gay men have been looking for sex and romance, their best female friends have been supporting them. Whats that about? What is the special relationship between gay men and their BFFs?

It will be a fun, sexy, boundary-moving evening, one that will challenge your notions of what a modern opera might be! We cant guarantee Liza Minelli will be there, but who knows? You might meet find yourself straining to view the sexy shenanigans next to our own modern Canadian equivalents!
