The Aria of Julie d'Aubigny,
the cross-dressing, sword-fighting, opera singer,
wherein she seduces men and women alike,
wins numerous duels, must be twice pardoned by the King, and eventually finds true love.
Cast: 10-20 - Historical Biographical Drama
Julie d’Aubigny was born with a talent for singing, but she was raised as a duelist. She is used to solving her problems with violence, which has gotten her some unwanted notoriety. While gaining acclaim in the Paris Opera, she is also getting attention for her complicated love life: a friend abroad who is an on-again-off-again lover, a doe-eyed man who shares her bed, and a woman she longingly pines for. With a long list of past conquests both in fighting and in romance, Julie, sometimes, has a difficulty keeping the two separate. As her love life spins out of control, she begins to feel as if she is fighting the whole world at once. But if she can find someone who understands her, maybe she can finally have the love she has been searching for.
