Maria Johansdotter is a brave woman who will do anything to be able to live as an independent person and a musician. She follows her heart and suffers proudly the consequences of her actions. When the judge asks her if she is a man or a woman, she answers that she is both, but more a man. Today, over 300 years later we are telling the story of Maria Johansdotter/Magnus Johansson, born in the late 17th century in Åland and ended her life in Stockholm, Sweden. The opera will be performed in Swedish with subtitles. No intermission. Café Vivo open 11-22.
