Twelfth Night, O Lo Que Quieras

From 2020 to the cultimating Community Tour in 2022, was a co-composer, musician, and actor as Feste in Delaware Shakespeare's bilingual musical production of Twelfth Night.  PlayShakespeare's review described it as "[Ximena] Violante’s Feste is charismatic and dedicated to their cause without losing the character’s playful humor, a key part of the production’s success."

Broad Street Review called Twelfth Night "cogent, swift, and joyous", saying "the production is also anchored by Violante, an accomplished and passionate singer who plays the jarana (a small Mexican guitar) and whose expertise in the Veracruz son jarocho tradition threads strongly and movingly throughout the play."  Read the full review here.
