Let's see.   A guess: she is the performer and you are the guy expected to deliver stellar results.  Good luck.

In any case, do some trial and error in rehearsal before the big event.

Audio will be your biggest challenge.

There are plenty of used HD or even 4k cameras for sale that have 3.5mm mic jacks and headphone jacks priced under $700.  There are also good external recorders that cost under $300.

The Sony ZV-1 allows one to use the hot shoe with a mic.  However, the audio won't be very good unless placed fairly close to the performer.  At any distance, ambient noises and echoes will mar the audio quality.

Will there be electronic amplification anyway?  Could your audio capture tap into that?

To repeat: test and experiment first.  Have a back-up audio capture if Plan A fails.
