Show time at the Walt Whitman Theatre is 2 PM. In Diva on the Verge, press notes state, "Migenes puts her daring wit and audacious humor to their best use . . . combining stunning and often hilarious interpretations of some of the world's best-known arias with anecdotes about the rigid world of opera. Part Barbra Streisand, part Maria Callas, and part Lucille Ball, she effortlessly portrays all of the great heroines, from the murderous Tosca to the delicate Juliette to the consumptive Mimi."

Written by Migenes in 1998, Diva on the Verge was first performed in 1999 in France.

In a statement Migenes said, "Much to the dismay of certain purists, opera has been a part of my life since I was three, when I was pulled from a deep sleep to replace the child in Madama Butterfly and decided to scream my way through all of the soprano arias. Since then I have been singing or screaming opera, depending on the performance and who you speak to."

In addition to her numerous opera credits, Migenes has appeared on Broadway in Carnival!, West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof.
