Ira Siff in Vera Galupe-Borszkh: Farewell Recital

Vera Galupe-Borszkh: The Annual Farewell Recital

2003 NR

The majestic Mme. Vera Galupe-Borszkh (a drag-diva tour de force from Ira Siff), prima donna of the La Gran Scena Opera Company, takes the stage for a dramatic recital capped off by her stunning aria "Suicido!" The ample-bosomed performer is aided by such timeless props as sleeping pills and a dagger to illustrate the tragic tale -- just one of many of Vera's off-kilter, not-quite-accurate takes on the opera classics.
