Famed drag performer Dee Legendary embarks on a passionate love affair with Officer John, whose fascination with Dee takes an unexpected and dangerous turn. Inspired by a true story, Legendary is an opera about double lives and destructive desires set in the glory days of New York City’s underground drag culture.

Composer Joseph Rubinstein and librettist Jason Kim’s work is a stylish and flamboyant, intimate and daring, lyrical chamber opera fused with 1980s dance music, jazz and pop influences.
