Two Sopranos, a Mezzo and One Bitch Diva- Raymond Helkio - MyGayToronto

Two Sopranos, a Mezzo and One Bitch Diva
29 November 2017.


Michael Fitzgerald is legendary in the performing arts community. His alter ego, Bitch Diva, have helped transform him into a force to be reckoned with. He is widely known for his sharp-witted tongue and pitch-perfect voice, which he often uses in place of the more traditional lip synching. From aria's to cabaret, Micheal is as talented as he is entertaining and recently I caught up with him (in boy drag) just before his performance at Teeming With Song (think: Bach to Bernstein), a concert in which he was doing what he does best, baritone. 

Ray: Tell me about tonight's show, Teeming With Song?
Bitch: It's a concert put on by a group I'm in called The Castle Frank House of Medley. Tonight will be two sopranos a mezzo and me. We sing as an ensemble and perform duets and shit like that.

Ray: What are you most excited about?
Bitch: Remembering all my words.

Ray: What are you most nervous about?
Bitch: Trying to remember all my words.

Ray: What do you know now that you wish you had known before you started your drag career?
Bitch: How to put on eyelashes.

Ray: What can we expect from your upcoming show at Club 120?
Bitch: It's a cabaret show with a Christmas twist show and a couple of surprise guests. It's fun show and the last one was a blast with jazz, musical theatre standards and classical numbers.
