My Name Is Woman

written and performed by Violetta Lazin


Beloved by audiences throughout the Netherlands, My Name Is Woman fits perfectly into the Music-Theatre genre.

A leading lady and one man orchestra are at the heart of this unique theatrical experience with music from numerous genres, spoken text, and a compelling story of courage and friendship.

My Name Is Woman tells the story of a refugee, student, waitress, artist, psychiatric patient, and friend. This dynamic musical journey traverses the historic landscape of anti-Milosevic protests in Belgrade, NATO bombings, immigration offices and smoked up cafes, student dorms, hospital beds, and finally the international opera stage.

This is the story of my life. Intimate, simple, perfectly communicated through spoken text and music.
