The brilliant Ira Siff assumes the identity of Mme. Galupe-Borszkh, prima donna of La Gran Scena Opera Company. “In her courageous commitment to challenging gender barriers as she champions venerable performing-arts stereotypes, Mme. Galupe-Borszkh is equaled perhaps only by the Ballets Trocadero de Monte Carlo and Dame Edna Everage. But . . . Dame Edna can’t offer the kind of musical and interpretive skills the soprano demonstrates in “Suicidio!,” an aria whose action she attempts to illustrate with the help of a range of props, from sleeping pills to a dagger that, alas, buckles altogether before the redoubtable ”—Ann Midgette, Opera News.
