Liminal: Occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.
Exploring the bittersweet richness of the dark, with the creamy decadence of the light, Le Gateau Chocolat joins forces with King’s Head Theatre to create a brand new show.
Each night, a specially curated operatic song cycle will offer a meditation on where do we go and who do we become when we lose our anchor?
For years, in a small room at the back of a pub, audiences have seen the greatest operas reworked, reimagined, and updated. But what happens when Tosca takes her taxi home at the end of the night? When Figaro has a zoom meeting at 11.00am?
King’s Head favourites and some exciting new voices explore the space between the persona and the person in a new honest and emotional response to the world away from the glamour.
Developed and directed by Le Gateau Chocolat, this is a raw personal look at opera and the people who perform it. Different for each cast, opera doesn’t get more intimate than this.
Written and directed by Le Gateau Chocolat
Co-written and narrated by Tommy Bradson
