Julie d'Aubigny. Swordswoman. Opera Singer. Rogue. Notorious bisexual. In La Maupin this creature of legend lives again, in a fast-paced musical adventure. At her peak, Julie was a force to be reckoned with - bashing bigots, tumbling chambermaids, and taking on some of Opera's most iconic roles, from Pallas Athena to Dido. But under the legend there is a woman before her time. A woman trying to navigate an austere world that never quite made sense to her. Accounts vary; was she a lunatic or a martyr? A hero or a cautionary tale? Only one fact goes undisputed about Julie d'Aubigny, La Maupin: She is a legend.
