CABARET / DRAG

FELIX GRAHAM (stage names: FELIX | FELIX / FELICITY | JULIUS VON DER KOCH) came to the cabaret stage by way of the operatic and concert stage. As a classical, his primary repertoire consists primarily of pants roles, or operatic drag – roles written for women, who perform as young male characters…or sometimes, as the more complicated version: a woman, playing a young man, disguised as young woman.

Moving between the opera house to the cabaret, Felix was inspired by the recursive nature of these pants roles, bringing that gender fluidity and androgynous characterization to contemporary music. As a New York City-based cabaret performer, he specializes in the music of the 1920s and 30s, as well as Latin and standards from the American Songbook. In his contemporary repertoire, he has performed at Stage 72, at the White House's Music for the National Christmas Tree festival, at Room 53, and recently produced and performed in Love is a Many-Splintered Thing, an off-broadway musical set in 1930s queer New York.
