Dame Edna to Make Guest Appearance at Met

Dame Edna to Make Guest Appearance at Met

Possums, beware. Dame Edna Everage, one of Australia's most exotic imports, will make a guest appearance in the Metropolitan Opera's New Year's Eve gala performance of Rossini's comic opera "Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville)."

Known for her purple hair and oversized rhinestone eyeglasses, Dame Edna (aka impersonator Barry Humphries) will appear in Act II and sing during the "music lesson scene" in which the beautiful Rosina (Katarina Karneus) and Count Almaviva (Matthew Polenzani) are found in a lovers' tryst, it was announced Monday.

Dame Edna is starring in "Dame Edna: Back With a Vengeance!" on Broadway. Her first Broadway gig, "Dame Edna: The Royal Tour," was a Tony-winning hit.
