“Swordswoman, Opera Singer, Runaway: ‘Goddess’ Chronicles A Fabled Life”

“I started to think, how would that have been, to be a cross-dressing, sword-fighting opera singer in the 17th century — I mean, she would have felt incredibly alone for a lot of her life, and incredibly brave. So she must’ve felt apart, I think, for a great deal of her life…
she saw a young woman on the dance floor, beautiful young woman. And she kissed her. Everyone gasped, and three men, one after another, three noblemen, challenged her to a duel. So she said to them, one after another, yes, I’ll meet you outside at midnight. She met them at midnight, fought them, one after another, beat them all, and then returned to the ball. As you do.”
