Aida Cupcake – Drag Me to the Opera

Aida (“I eat a” – like the Verdi Opera or the Elton John musical), is the star of the critically acclaimed one-person show “Drag Me to the Opera,” which has toured to fringe festivals across Canada including a sold-out run at the Calgary Fringe 2021 and the Winnipeg Fringe in 2023.  

 Aida and her show have also won the distinction of the Critic’s Pick Award (Hamilton Fringe 2022), Spirit of the Fringe Award (Victoria Fringe 2022) and Jenny Award in the category of queer themed shows (Winnipeg Fringe 2023). The show was also given 5 STARS by the Winnipeg Free Press

Despite her name, Aida loves Puccini and Mozart! She has also performed with Drag For Kids (Music with Mandy/ArtsXpedition), the Calgary Philharmonic’s Drag Storytime (Jan 2024), Dramaturgy on Demand (Aida Cupcake Drags you to Church), Storybook Theatre (Halloween MisCAST), Alberta Vocal Arts (Die Fledermaus) as well as being a Royal Reader for the Calgary Public Library. 
Aida’s alter-ego is Calgary-based performer, Steven Morton. His background includes a BMus in Voice, over a dozen operatic credits, over 30 musical theatre credits, and over 15 years as a vocal coach. 

Having pursued training at various opera programs in Canada and abroad, he is a sought-after instructor with a voice that has been described as “rich,” “powerful” (Calgary Herald), “beautiful, unique,” (Winnipeg Free Press) and “jawdropping” (SCG Reviews).  

Steven sits on the board for the Calgary Boys Choir and Alberta Vocal Arts and is a member of the National Assoc. of Teachers of Singing.
