WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jezebel, siren, vixen, or enchantress? The Mistress Cycle tells the story of five women: Tess, a struggling 30-something Manhattan photographer; Anaïs Nin, the famed sexual adventuress of the early 20th century; Diane de Poitiers, the mistress of Henri II of France in the 16th century; Lulu White, a turn-of-the-last-century New Orleans madame; and Ching, a 14-year-old concubine in 12th century China. Though they come from different times and cultures, they share a sisterhood. An intelligent new musical work filled with stories of passion, compromise, heartbreak, and renewal.
