This was a bold recording commissioned by San Francisco party impresario Ggreg Taylor for a fund raiser for The San Francisco Opera in 2003. The Forgotten Opera is a masked ball meant to introduce the spectacle and art of opera to a younger crowd via a frenzied dance party at The Regency Theater. The SF Opera made their stage props and some costumes available for the event and the transvestites said “yes baby” and were out in style.
I worked with diva Marisa Lenhardt to create a original dance track for her grand performance. The song below is an instrumental version of the original. Marisa is a soprano to be reckoned with. She is also the ruling diva at Burning Man’s Thunderdome. There is no leather clad motorcycle strutting soprano like her.
